HSABC Webinar: Supporting Survivors of Sexual Assault

April 14, 2021, 10:00 - 11:30 AM

Dr. Hillary McBride is has a Ph D Counselling Psychology.  During her doctoral studies, Hillary continues the research she started in her Masters: exploring women’s relationships with their bodies, particularly when women feel comfortable and appreciative of their own bodies. She is also involved in ongoing research about women’s postpartum sexual health, and perinatal mental health – supporting women’s well-being during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period, as well as the experience of being a female doctoral student.

Hillary’s work is deeply personal, and informed by how she has both experience and observed women’s struggles to embrace themselves and their bodies, as they are, in all stages of life. She is an avid tea drinker, and will never turn down a cup of chai.
