Sexual Health

Sophie Bergeron  Ph.D

The Canada Research Chair in Intimate Relationships and Sexual Wellbeing will aim to understand (1) what prevents adolescents and adults from forging satisfying intimate and sexual relationships, such as childhood victimization, and (2) what may facilitate these relationships, such as social support, intimacy and attachment. (3) This Chair will also aim to develop and evaluate novel targeted interventions to improve individuals’ intimate and sexual relationships across the lifespan. Throughout, Dr. Bergeron will focus on inclusion and diversity challenges specific to vulnerable populations, in particular, sexual and gender minorities, in addition to the growing role of emerging technologies in our social ties.
