The role of attachment issues in coping with a long-term skin condition


Project Description

Skin condition can be associated with significant levels of distress and stress can play a role in the course of a number of conditions. Attachment theory argues that our experience of care influences affect regulation. Several studies have found that attachment orientation is associated with coping with various health conditions. Priming attachment security has been reported to have positive effects on psychological outcomes. This PhD would investigate the potential benefits of attachment priming in skin condition.
