I have two Masters Degrees and am successful in life. Great wife, job, kids. . . I have it all. I however have been controlled by one specific anxiety my whole life. This group helps and is doing very important work with very meaningful consequences for millions of people like me. In my situation, drug testing, which is required, is my worse nightmare even though I have never done any drugs in my life. anyway, this is a great nonprofit.

The IPA is doing incredible work in helping those who suffer from Paruresis. I have a loved one who fits this category with whom I've had the good fortune to attend 2 separate workshops put on by the IPA. The combination of targeted discussion and practicing specific techniques is very helpful to people with Paruresis. In addition, the workshop participants are able to build a support group who they can stay in touch with going forward. This is a first class organization that is doing great things in the areas of helping Paruresis sufferers and educating the general public on this debilitating condition that affects millions of Americans.

Like many people who suffer from shy bladder syndrome, which makes it difficult or even impossible to urinate in public, I thought I was alone and without hope of overcoming my condition until I discovered IPA. The organization provides a support community, educational materials, and workshops, all of which have been very helpful to me.

My life has improved tremendously sense I started doing the workshops. I was seldom able to use a public restroom, or a bathroom at home if anyone was near the door.
I am now able to travel and seldom find it difficult to use public restrooms, including airplanes,boats, and trains.
Thank You
Kevin

As a person who deals with paruresis I find this organization very supportive. I felt relief in finding this company and information they provided in helping people like me deal with this condition. I very much appreciate all that this company does for eveyone who seeks help for our condition. They do make a difference.

I read Dr. Soifer's book, met 3 of the members of a local branch of IPA, and finally attended an IPA workshop together with about 20 other attendees who suffered from Shy Bladder Syndrome. Dr. Soifer is a compassionate educator and leader who helps people cope with and overcome SBS and the fear, shame and anxiety attached to it. IPA has helped me tremendously!
