Participate in Research

The development of research to provide relevant knowledge and insights into the field of pelvic health is critical for our work as Pelvic Health Physiotherapists. Companies are often looking for participants who are willing to contribute their time and experiences towards our research efforts, and it is entirely your decision to participate or not.

At the Sexual Health Research Laboratory at Queen's University (Kingston, Ontario, Canada), they are currently conducting a study looking at the effectiveness of a virtual, synchronous, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based group therapy treatment program developed for individuals with Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD/GPD). Eligible participants will be able to take part (free of cost) in a virtual group therapy program (i.e., able to attend from the comfort of home) offered via the Sex and Relationship Therapy Service at the Queen’s Psychology Clinic (facilitated by a licensed clinical psychologist and a PhD student in clinical psychology at Queen’s University). The program pulls together elements from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), in order to impart evidence-based psychoeducation as well as skills and strategies targeting mental health, management of PGAD/GPD symptoms and related lifestyle impacts.
