We recently recorded a new podcast with Dr Andrew Thompson from University of Sheffield on the 15th of May. Andrew is a clinical psychologist from the University of Sheffield. He has recently been involved in developing and testing self-help interventions aimed at reducing distress associated with a variety of conditions that effect appearance. This work has focused on the application of techniques from a variety of models including CBT, Mindfulness, and Compassion Focused Therapy.
Just some of the topics we discussed in this podcast include alopecia, anxiety, social anxiety and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). We will update you when the podcast is ready for public listening. In the meantime please listen to our other podcasts: https://www.mindandskin.co.uk/podcasts/
