Holder of Staff
Job title Senior Lecturer in Psychology
Research overview <p>I have an established track record of internationally recognised research in the areas of sex, gender and relationships, and in counselling and psychotherapy. I was co-founder of the Taylor and Francis journal<em>Psychology&amp; Sexuality</em>and am on the editorial board of journals including<em>Sexual and Relationship Therapy</em>,<em>Sexualities</em>, and<em>Porn Studies</em>. I have published numerous books, chapters, and academic papers including seminal edited collections on BDSM (Langdridge&amp; Barker, 2007) and non-monogamous relationships (Barker&amp; Langdridge, 2010) as well as an international handbook of the psychology gender and sexuality (Richards&amp; Barker, 2015) and a forthcoming co-authored monograph on sex advice (Barker, Gill&amp; Harvey, 2018). I have also produced several well-regarded texts on counselling and psychotherapy, particularly in my specialist areas of mindfulness, sex therapy, and gender, sexual and relationship diversity (Barker, Vossler&amp; Langdridge, 2010; Barker, 2013; Richards&amp; Barker, 2013; Brotto&amp; Barker, 2014).</p><p>I am actively involved in organising international and national conferences (e.g. Sexual Cultures, BiReCon, Non-Monogamies and Contemporary Intimacies) and have been an invited keynote speaker at many international conferences of academics and therapists (e.g. the Society for Sex Therapy and Research, the Canadian Psychological Association conference).&nbsp;</p>
