Research on relationships and infertility

May 27, 2016

School of Psychology at Bond University are conducting Fertility research entitled “Intimate Relationships among couples dealing with infertility”. The aim of the research is to investigate the role of acceptance and mindfulness in relation to dyadic adjustment in couples facing fertility difficulties. Specifically, they wish to investigate how partners, as a relationship unit cope with their current challenges. They are hoping that both partners complete the online survey i...n order to gain insight into dyadic coping. However, in instances where both partners cannot contribute, individual partner participation is also valuable. It is hoped that the results of this project will contribute to the development of appropriate psychological support programs for couples facing fertility difficulties. The study has been approved by Bond University Human Research Ethics Committee (BUHREC) (Ethics Approval Code: RO 1951; please feel free to contact BUHREC if you have any questions or concerns regarding this research: buhrec@bond.edu.au). The research questionnaire takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and can be accessed online via the following link:
