Overview

Sexuality is an integral part of gender identity, self-image, and overall well-being. Sexual dysfunctions present in all cultures and ethnicities around the world. Sexual problems have an especially high prevalence among patients with psychiatric syndromes -- yet, in recent years, the field of psychiatry has shifted away from the treatment of sexual disorders. Clinical Manual of Sexual Disorders is the first comprehensive text in decades to address the management and treatment of sexual dysfunctions and disorders. Using a conceptual model that incorporates biological, psychological, and cultural interventions as its guiding principle, the book explores and evaluates the epidemiology of sexual disorders and paraphilias, sexual dysfunctions with comorbid psychiatric disorders, sexual problems associated with various medications, and sexual disorders in specific patient populations.

Written by 25 contributing clinical specialists from around the world, the text combines conceptual shifts within the field of human sexuality with the latest research findings into a practical three-part volume. The first four chapters cover general areas relevant to the clinical understanding of human sexuality and sexual dysfunctions within the frame of psychiatry. The second part of the book outlines the major sexual dysfunctions, including male erectile disorder, female arousal disorder, premature ejaculation, and paraphilias. And the final chapters address the management of sexual issues in two unique patient populations that are often neglected in other textbooks -- children and adolescents and older adults.

The book includes several unique features to further enhance learner retention • Tables, charts, figures, and illustrations to enhance the reading material• Evaluations, questionnaires and other patient materials • Take-away points on key clinical issues at the end of each chapter• Case examples from the authors' own practices• References for further reading

Restoration of sexual function can improve the quality of life for many individuals with and without psychiatric disorders, making recognition and treatment of sexual problems of utmost importance to any general psychiatric practice. As the only text of its kind, Clinical Manual of Sexual Disorders provides a concise, clinically-oriented biopsychosocial guide to the management and treatment of sexual dysfunction that is appropriate for all psychiatric, clinical, and educational settings.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aaron Plattner, MD (Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services)
Description: This is a comprehensive review of the description, epidemiology, course, contributing biopsychosocial factors, and treatment strategies for various sexual disorders throughout the different stages of life.
Purpose: The authors stress the importance of treating sexual dysfunctions that exist universally — with increased rates in patients with psychiatric syndromes — in an environment that finds the field of psychiatry shifting away from treatment of sexual disorders.
Audience: This book is intended for general psychiatrists, but will be helpful for any mental health worker or primary care provider.
Features: The first of the book's three sections sets the groundwork for the remainder by reviewing the clinical aspects of human sexuality with key sections on comorbid medical issues and how to completely evaluate sexual issues. The second section reviews the management of major sexual dysfunctions including paraphilias, premature ejaculation, male erectile disorder, female orgasmic disorder, and others. The final section addresses the proper management of sexual issues in children and adolescents and older adults. Sections include helpful tables, charts, figures, illustrations, case examples, key points at the end of each chapter, and several references for further reading.
Assessment: As a psychiatry resident, I found this book extremely helpful as the authors have successfully consolidated a great deal of information in a single, concise, and clinically oriented text which presents the necessary information and practical tools to better provide treatment of patients with sexual disorders. Before I got this book, I had accumulated a scattering of articles from various other texts and journals that were helpful, but not as complete or concise as this book.
