Podcast 6: “Clinical Psychology with Dr Andrew Thompson”


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/

We recently collaborated with Skin Care Cymru and Dr Avad Mughal in recording two new podcasts. In the first podcast Dr Mughal discusses Eczema pathology, manifestation, steroid phobia and impact on daily quality of life. Dr Mughal is a Consultant in Dermatology and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer with Swansea University. In the second podcast we sat down with three patients who have experiences of Eczema, Melanoma and Rosacea.

We are aiming to have these released late May. Updates will be available via our website and social media pages.

Thank you to Dr Mughal, Julie Peconi and guest speakers for volunteering their time with us.

E-dermatology modules

Web based learning materials


E-dermatology is an online learning resource which focuses on the diagnosis and management of common dermatological disorders. Initially designed for trainees, it is now also available, free of charge, to all clinicians working in the NHS and all members of the British Dermatological Nursing Group (BDNG) in the UK.

It has been developed by the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) in partnership with HEE e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH).

The e-learning sessions are around 20 minutes in length, to fit in with busy work-study lives. The materials for e-dermatology have been designed to be used on any internet enabled device either at home, in the workplace or on the move. Some of the exciting features of these e-learning materials include the use of high resolution images, videos clips and animated interactions, to enrich the learning experience and increase visual accessibility.
