Summary: Seeking therapists/social workers/counselors

Query: We are producing a patient education guide on Plaque Psoriasis and want to include a story with tips to help people with psoriasis deal with social anxiety. I am looking for expert quotes/tips/ideas from therapists, social workers, counselors and mental health workers on the following questions:

  1. Some people living with visible plaque psoriasis have a difficult time leaving their home due to fear of people staring at them in public. Covering up with clothes or makeup is not always an option, and sometimes proper treatment to make the plaques go away takes a long time to figure out (and isn’t affordable for some). How can someone work through this particular anxiety and feel more confident and comfortable in public spaces?
  2. If having psoriasis is causing someone to isolate, what are some methods they can use to find and build meaningful friendships?
  3. People with psoriasis can also find it difficult to date. If they are meeting people online or going on a blind date, what methods can they use to lessen the anxiety of meeting that person face-to-face for the first time while they are experiencing a flare? What if their psoriasis isn’t visible while clothed, but they are afraid to experience intimacy because undressing will mean revealing their condition?
  4. What are some methods someone can use to calm themselves and gain confidence if their psoriasis is impacting their performance in the workplace? How do you navigate that conversation with coworkers or overcome anxiety about giving presentations or leading meetings when you think others are judging you for your skin condition?
