A research study being conducted by researchers from the Department of Psychology at the University of Sheffield is seeking to find out whether a self-help intervention is effective for adults with a visible skin difference. The self-help intervention aims to help people build their confidence in social situations.

If your confidence in social situations is affected by your visible skin difference and you are aged 18 or over, you are eligible to participate.

Participants in the study will be asked to complete a set of questionnaires. These will be repeated once during the course of the study, to see whether the self-help is effective. You will receive the self-help intervention as a PDF document either straight away or after a waiting period.
