In 2012 The Centre for Appearance research at the University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol launched their new online support tool for adults with disfigurements - ‘Face IT'. Face IT is an 8 week programme which helps users to manage negative reactions to their appearance by building social skills and self-confidence and to challenge their negative assumptions and thoughts about their appearance and how others view them by using cognitive behavioural strategies.
