Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy Study from University of Sheffield

9th December 2015

Researchers from the University of Sheffield are looking for people with a visible skin condition (including alopecia) who are experiencing social anxiety to take part in their study. 

The title of the study is "The effectiveness of mindfulness based cognitive group therapy for social anxiety symptoms in people living with visible skin conditions: a single case series"

This Patient Information Sheet tells you more about why the research is being done and what it involves for those taking part. Please take the time to read this information carefully. 

For some people, living with a visible skin condition has been found to have an impact on wellbeing. This can sometimes affect how people interact with others and confidence in social situations. People living with a skin condition can sometimes worry about what other people might think and might avoid things like meeting new people and socialising. 

The aim of this research is to examine if mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is helpful for people living with a visible skin condition who are experiencing social anxiety. The Patient Information Sheet tells you more about social anxiety and mindfulness based cognitive therapy. 

The course will run in Sheffield City Centre so you need to be able to travel to Sheffield, once a week for the 8 week course. 

If after reading the Patient Information Sheet you need any further information, please contact Kerry Montgomery: kmontgomery1@sheffield.ac.uk
