What does psychology have to do with coeliac disease?

Coeliac Disease (CD) is an autoimmune condition in which the body, after ingestion of gluten, starts to attack itself and damage the lining of the small intestine. Symptoms include failure to thrive, weight loss, nausea, constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, anaemia and abdominal pain. Over the longer term untreated CD has been associated with increased risks for osteoporosis, cancer and fertility. Click on the photo to read more.

Gut Feelings DVD for Young People

For young people living with coeliac disease is challenging. This groundbreaking DVD was developed by clinical psychologists and researchers at the University of Birmingham. Hear nine young people aged 9-17 tell their stories. Whether you are a young person, a parent or carer, a healthcare professional, or simply interested in coeliac disease, this DVD will help. The DVD will help to demystify the condition and give young people the support and confidence they need to manage their coeliac disease.

Parenting Gut Feelings DVD

The second DVD in the Gut Feelings series, introduced by Professor Alice Roberts, shares the experiences of parents who have a child with coeliac disease. Parents talk openly about their experiences of their children’s diagnosis and the impact it has on them, their children and the family. You will also hear from a consultant paediatric gastroenterologist on working with children and parents and supporting them to manage the condition.

School of Psychology

The School of Psychology is ranked among the top three psychology departments for research and has a reputation for excellent teaching.
