Members of the research team – 2017
The Sexual Health Laboratory is run by Sophie Bergeron, Ph.D. Full Professor in the Department of Psychology at the Université de Montréal.
Dr. Bergeron's research focuses on the psychosocial and interpersonal aspects of sexual health of individuals and couples. In particular, her work uses an interdisciplinary perspective to further our understanding of the diagnosis, etiology and treatment of gynecological pain (i.e., dyspareunia, vaginismus and genito-pelvic pain and penetration disorder). Her current research projects, funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), focus on evaluating the efficacy of cognitive, behavioural and medical interventions in treating dyspareunia, as well as investigating the role of affective, cognitive and relationship variables involved in this problem.
The over-arching purpose of the work conducted by the Sexual Health Laboratory is to improve sexual well-being and health for individuals and couples.
