Jenkinson, Elizabeth

Authors



Abstract

A growing body of research and clinical observations is showing that people with visible differences or disfigurements are prone to developing anxiety and social anxiety related to their appearance. In severe cases, this can result in social withdrawal. Elizabeth Jenkinson considers how nurses and psychologists might help support people who feel so anxious about their looks that it impacts on their quality of life.
