Before we start this program, I would like to begin by describing a little bit about the aim of Face IT. We'll also spend some time talking about some of the problems that individuals with visible differences may face as well as the issues that we need to think about. These may or may not be problems that affect you personally and the aim of this program is to provide you with the chance to work through the difficulties you most want to look at.
Face IT includes the use of cognitive-behavioural strategies, as well as social skills training techniques. These are designed to help you reconsider your beliefs about the behaviours of others, identify how un-helpful thoughts can affect your own behaviour and provide you with useful techniques to help social situations feel comfortable. Towards the end of the program you'll also be given the chance to learn how to deal with situations that you personally find distressing or uncomfortable.
