Dr Simon Coulombe is an assistant professor in community psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada. He is visiting Surrey this winter and this spring to collaborate with Dr David Frost, lecturer in the School of Psychology. As part of a larger study (project SHARe) directed by Dr Allen LeBlanc, professor in sociology at San Francisco State University, the three researchers are analyzing the dyadic processes underlying the influence of minority stress on the relationship projects (i.e., goals, concerns) and well-being of LGBT individuals. Using data from the first wave of this large study with same-sex couples, Dr Coulombe’s visit at Surrey will be an opportunity to develop several manuscripts showcasing the results from such analyses. This should also set the foundations for a future collaborative study to explore stigma toward LGBT individuals and their projects, in relation to LGBT rights and social policy in different parts of the world.
