Individuals with visible difference commonly experience appearance-related social worry. There are limited resources to help people with appearance-related distress, so internet-provided self-help interventions may be beneficial. An online self-help intervention based upon Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) has been developed.

What is the study about?

This study examines whether a self-help booklet based upon ACT is effective in improving social confidence in adults with a visible difference who experience appearance-related social worry.

Who is being invited to take part?

We are asking adults with a visible difference who experience appearance-related social worry to take part. To take part, you need to be fluent in the English language and not currently receiving psychological therapy.

What will I be asked to do?

We will ask you to complete some questionnaires on two occasions, four weeks apart. You will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. One group will receive the self-help booklet straight away and the other group will receive it in four weeks’ time. If you receive the intervention straight away, we ask that you work through it in the four-week period.
