The SFU Couples Lab is located in the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University and is directed by Dr. Rebecca Cobb, Ph.D. At the SFU Couples Lab, our goal is to better understand how romantic relationships change and develop over time. Close relationships can be important sources of support and happiness; however, developing and maintaining satisfying relationships is not always easy. We aim to examine how factors such as psychological health, attachment security, and communication can affect couples' relationship and sexual satisfaction. Our current research projects focus on the role of sexual communication in romantic relationships and how to teach people to have healthier and happier relationships.
