Sex Therapy Project


This project documents the psychological, sexual and relational characteristics of customers who seek sex therapy. It will also provide a better picture of the clients who consult in clinical sexology and the issues they experience, as well as a greater understanding of the mechanisms that explain sexual difficulties and the effectiveness of the treatments offered. Participants are recruited by interns in clinical sexology. The study includes three times of measurement.


The purpose of this component of the project is to increase knowledge about the characteristics of future sexology professionals and how these characteristics (e.g., therapeutic alliance, personal distress, personal characteristics, satisfaction with training/supervision) relate to the evolution of the treatment offered.
