The Body and the Bedroom: An Exploration of Crohn’s Disease and Intimacy, Graduate Student Research (IRB #24-008)

Hello all, I hope this post finds you all in good spirits!

I am a graduate student currently attending Adler University in pursuance of my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. I am writing a dissertation on the impact of Crohn’s Disease and sexual health and intimacy, and I am currently seeking participants for research interviews about experiences related to Crohn’s Disease and sexual health and functioning in young adults. Criteria to participate in the study are the following:

Individuals must have a diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease,
Individuals must be between 18-35 years of age,
Individuals must have engaged in a romantic or sexual relationship within the past year.

I have attached both a flyer for participation in the study as well as a link to a short survey to see if individuals might qualify.
