Iffah Ali is a student at Ulster University studying for a Masters in Applied Psychology. She is undertaking a piece of research as part of her studies under the supervision of Dr John Mallett, a lecturer in Health Psychology.
The purpose of this research is to get an in-depth insight into the psychological impact alopecia can have on one's life. As Iffah has experienced alopecia herself, she is very keen to do research in this field. The study will examine the relationship between self-esteem, duration, perceived stigma, severity, coping, support and quality of life. This study will also explore gender differences and age in all of the above measures.
Interested participants are invited to take part in an online quantitative survey. Responses to the online survey are anonymised and no data will be collected that would identify any participants in the study.
