About

Dr. Samantha Dawson is an Assistant Professor in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of British Columbia. Since 2009, her research program has focused on identifying mechanisms contributing to sexual function in individuals and couples, with the goal of using these mechanisms to develop targeted interventions for sexual dysfunction. Her clinical interests include evidence-based interventions for sexual dysfunction. Dr. Dawson is in the process of registration with the College of Psychologists of British Columbia.


Research

Research interests include cognitive and affective factors underlying sexual function and dysfunction in individuals and couples. Dr. Dawson’s research program involves experimental laboratory-based research using various sexual psychophysiological measures (e.g., eye tracking, genital plethysmography), as well as more ecologically-valid daily experience and longitudinal methodologies.
