Research Opportunity: ‘ACT It Out’ app for adults ready for testing

July 22, 2020

Researchers from the Centre for Appearance Research at UWE Bristol are looking for people born with a cleft who are experiencing psychological / social difficulties related to looking different, to test ACT It Out, a prototype mobile app.

ACT It Out is designed to help adults (18+) who have any different or unusual appearance live a fulfilling life by doing more of what matters to you and reducing the impact of appearance concerns.

The app is based on an evidence-based approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT. ACT It Out was developed by a collaboration of UWE researchers, specialist psychologists and a group of people who have a different appearance.
