Adjusting To Your Unmet Desire For Children: Lessons from Psychological Research by Sofia Gameiro
Sofia Gameiro is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Psychology, Cardiff University. She has degrees in Mathematics – Computer Science and Clinical Psychology and a PhD in Health Psychology. Sofia has been conducting research on the psychosocial aspects of infertility for over ten years.
Her mission is to promote patient wellbeing and quality of life through and after fertility treatment and to ensure that infertility psychosocial care is evidence-based. She coordinated the development of the European (ESHRE) Guidelines for Routine Psychosocial Care in Infertility and Assisted Reproduction.
In this webinar – Sofia will be presenting the results of multiple research studies conducted with more than 10,000 people, focusing on how women and men adjust in the aftermath of infertility treatment or, more generally, when they realize they will not be able to have the children they wish to have. She will describe people’s experience of confronting this painful life event and reflecting on the things that help them better adjust to the situation and overcome it with a renewed sense of hope towards the future.
