PERSPECTIVES IN PSYCHODERMATOLOGY
Dr. Katerina Steventon MSC, PHD
Psychodermatology addresses the interaction between emotional stressors and the correlation to skin conditions and their severity. This class will provide insights as to the socioeconomic and phycological impact acne clients may face due to their chronic conditions. Acne vulgaris one of the most common skin conditions. The prevalence of adult acne is increasing, and “female acne” has become a distinct clinical entity. Facial acne is difficult to hide and can have a significant detrimental impact on people’s quality of life. In Western societies that place high value on physical beauty, the visibility of this disorder has a greater negative impact on women’s social and emotional functioning. The degree of psychosocial impairment correlates with patient’s subjective assessment, not objective clinical severity of adult acne. The major emotional implications and its social consequences challenge the classical view of acne as something purely physiological or even trivial. Skincare recommendations and working with the cycle helps to alleviate the severity of the disease, the next step for a clinician in achieving successful outcomes is to guide self-management and work with patient’s emotional experiences.
