Human Sexuality Research Group 2013

Over the years I have collaborated with a number of excellent students on a variety of research topics. My current students and I are conducting research related to child sexual abuse, sexual communication, sexual satisfaction, attitudes toward sexuality and older adults, body-image and sexual well-being, genital self-image and sexual well-being, and on-line sexual activity.  Previous students have been involved in projects related to these and other topics (click here for a list of my current and recent research projects). The results of several of our studies have been featured in Canadian and American news stories. Moreover, my students often present our findings at psychology and sexuality conferences. Several of my students have won awards for the quality of their research and presentations.

In addition to working on research, my doctoral students have the opportunity to learn skills related to teaching human sexuality. For their teaching apprenticeship, several students have chosen to teach the undergraduate course in human sexuality under my supervision. Quite a number of students have had the opportunity to facilitate the tutorials associated with the Human Sexuality course that I teach. In the tutorials, undergraduate students discuss issues and participate in small group activities related to human sexuality topics. Finally, most of my clinical doctoral students have taken the clinical seminar I offer on the assessment and treatment of sexual problems, providing them with the foundation to gain experience in sex therapy and treatment of sexual problems by working with me in my private practice.
