New Research Project

  Women's Experiences of Sexual Desire and

Implications for Clinical Practice Research 

Sex Therapy New Zealand is supporting Chelsea Dowling, as sex therapy advisers, with her Doctorate of Clinical Psychology Research at Massey University. Chelsea is looking at  how women's sexual desire, factors affecting desire and sexual desire disorders are talked about and understood.  In doing so she has been talking to three different groups of people about women's sexual desire through three separate studies with young women, women seeking therapy and sex therapists.  Participation in this research is voluntary and independent of Sex Therapy New Zealand or any service provided by our therapists.   We look forward to sharing with you her findings.
