My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Paruresis Association, Inc., Catonsville, MD, USA
I first discovered IPA, Inc. in 2007 through an article in a men’s health magazine that provided me with a source of information for helping those of us with paruresis, commonly known as shy bladder. At the time, I did not know the extent to which this condition affected others and was excited to find a resource that could provide information and cognitive exposure therapy to lessen the impact of shy bladder. I was able to attend three of the graduated exposure therapy group sessions sponsored by a local IPA support group where about 20 of us shared our stories and practiced techniques to increase the success of peeing in public with others nearby. I have been a benefactor and supporter of IPA, Inc. since 2007 and believe that IPA is a great resource and may be the only organization dedicated to education and treatment of paruresis.
