Summary of SWELL Lab research

The Sexuality and Well-being (SWELL) Lab at the University of British Columbia investigates risk and protective factors contributing to sexual health in individuals and couples. We use a multi-method approach (e.g., psychophysiological assessments, daily experience methods, and longitudinal surveys) to identify mechanisms contributing to sexual health and then use these to develop interventions for people experiencing problems related to their sexuality. Our research and laboratory prioritize inclusivity with regard to sex/gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, and other marginalized groups.
