I am a Clinical Psychology PhD student and have been involved in this lab since April of 2012. My comprehensive project is examining relationship and sexual functioning in couples where the woman has a sexual pain condition. Specifically, I am looking at how functioning is impacted by the couple’s level of pain acceptance (i.e., how open they are to the experience of pain, and how much they continue to live their lives in spite of the chronic pain).
