TABI (Teen Appearance and Body Image) - CAR Research Study

07 June 2021

Young people often have concerns about the way they look. This can sometimes affect a range of things, such as their self-perceptions, their relationships with others, and how they do at school. The Centre for Appearance Research has launched a new study called TABI (Teen Appearance and Body Image) to explore young people’s experience of appearance and body image using an online survey.

The survey includes a range of topics from social life to mood and disposition to resilience. The TABI team are keen for all young people, with and without visible differences, to take part in their study to better understand their experiences. This will inform future research and the development of targeted support for young people who struggle with appearance-related issues.

As a thank you for taking part, participants will be entered into a prize draw to win one of four £50 Amazon vouchers!

If you are a young person (aged 11-17 years) living in the UK and are interested in taking part, please click here to be taken to the survey. There, you will find an information page with more details about the study.

You could also find out more by watching the video below.

Parental guidance and consent is required for those young people wishing to participate in this study, but are below the age of consent. 

Please feel free to share this information with anyone who you think may be interested.

If you have any questions about any of the above, please don’t hesitate to get in touch: Bruna.Oliveiracosta@uwe.ac.uk

Ethics approval code: HAS.19.08.010 Centre for Appearance Research (CAR) at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
