Abstract

Whilst participants with a disfiguring or appearance altering condition have expressed distress, fear, and anxiety in relation to their capacity to engage in physical intimacy and romantic relationships, there exists no measure of the perceived impact of visible difference upon this important domain of human relationships and functioning. This study sought to redress this through the development of a parsimonious CAR Romantic Relationships and Intimacy Scale.
