On 27 March 1987, the Liaison Group of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Society for Psychosomatic Research held a joint conference on ‘Disfigurement: Perceived and Actual’ at the Royal College of Psychiatrists. It was the first collaborative venture between the uni-disciplinary Liaison Group and the multi-disciplinary Society, but it is hoped it will be the first of a productive series. The Conference was well attended. The morning presentations were concerned mostly with dysmorphophobia, and the afternoon's with unmistakable disfigurement. The proceedings ended with a presentation, by Mrs Christine Piff, on her own experiences following surgery for facial cancer, and with her prosthesis. It is reproduced below.
