Kate Adkins is a researcher and Trainee Clinical Psychologist based at the University of Sheffield. As part of her doctoral research, she is interested in improving self-help interventions for people living with neurofibromatosis and dermatological conditions.
If neurofibromatosis affects how you feel about your body, please consider helping psychologists test a 1-week online writing intervention. By taking part you will be helping us learn whether the intervention could help improve body image for other individuals living with a range of dermatological conditions and be in with a chance to win a £50 voucher of your choice.
Who can take part?
- Age 18 or over.
- Living with a condition that affects the skin (e.g. neurofibromatosis).
- Who feels their condition negatively impacts how they feel about their body.
- Able to read and write in English.
What will it involve?
You will be asked to complete three 15-minute online writing tasks over the course of a week. You will also be asked to complete several questionnaires before the first writing task, after the final writing task and one month later. As this is a randomised controlled trial, you will be randomly assigned to either: (1) the writing intervention or (2) a control writing task. If you are allocated to the control tasks, you will have access to the intervention material at the end of the study.
