Over one million people in the UK have a significant disfigurement (visible difference) to the face or body.
Those affected often experience psychological difficulties associated with anxiety, poor body image, anger and low self-esteem, as well as social difficulties such as staring, name-calling, comments, rejection and unsolicited questions about their appearance.
This two-day course introduces psychologists and health professionals to the fundamental principles of working with people with appearance-related distress, and will provide you with the knowledge to enable you to better support individuals and signpost to appropriate support services.
The introductory course is delivered twice, the first time in January and the second time in July 2018; at booking please select when you want to attend.
- Course timings for both days: 09:00-17:00.
- The course is delivered by Dr Alyson Norman and Sue Jackson.
