A questionnaire study identifying psychological predictors of Skin Picking

Hi All,

I was hoping you could assist with my research.

As you may know skin picking is very common in the general population but currently there is limited research on skin picking therefore the onset still remains a mystery. It is viewed as a long term skin condition which is often associated with high levels of psychological distress.

My research aims to explore the relationship between skin picking and psychological distress to see if there are any common factors amongst people who skin pick. In particular this research will be looking to identify whether people who skin pick have similarities in the way they manage their mood; depression and anxiety levels as well as identifying how this groups regulates their emotions. This could help improve treatment and provide more knowledge for therapists working with individuals who suffer from skin picking.

This study is being conducted as part of my Professional Doctorate in Counselling psychology at the University of East London. The study involves completing a secure online survey that will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. All of your answers will be kept private and anonymous, only study researchers will have access to the data.

If you wish to ask any questions you can contact me via email

Currently there is very limited research in the field of skin picking so hopefully together we can gain a better understanding about skin picking.

Many thanks
