Bruna Costa, a researcher and trainee health psychologist at CAR, has launched an interview study to explore the experiences of Somali people with a visible facial difference, like nerve tumours.
Interviews will be remote (i.e., over the phone, on Microsoft Teams or Zoom) and can be in English or Somali. Interviews will cover several topics about the psychosocial impact of living with a visible facial difference.
Findings from this study will be important in helping shape the development of future support for Somali people affected by visible differences.
