    This anthology offers the reader occasion to think of treating sexual issues from a broad theoretical perspective. The term “brief” is used in the classical treatment sense (an issue treated for 20 sessions or less), and many of the cases presented are resolved to the clients satisfaction in as few as five. In an age when insurance panels and employee assistant programs are offering fewer and fewer sessions (most provide fewer than eight) to bring an issue to resolution, any help the therapist can get to bring about a healthy end to the presented issue is welcomed.
    The approaches to therapy highlighted in a brief context are: Possibility, Multicontextual, Age or Stage-Appropriate, Bowenian, Addiction (which includes an engaging discussion on the validity of Sex being considered an addiction), traditional Brief approaches, Relational, Eclectic/Narrative, Catalytic and Contextual. The reader will need to be somewhat familiar with the specific treatment approaches mentioned in each chapter, as the author does not have space to give their definition of the foundational method being explored in a brief context. With one exception each chapter is concise, clear, engaging and easily accessed for future reference. Chapter 12 (“Don’t Get Too Bloody Optimistic”) is the exception and that is due to it being almost totally case study. Unless the reader has firm understanding of MRI Brief therapy, the case presentation has lacks clarity and relevance.
    This book is a wealth of information for anyone who is doing therapy in the age of “managed” care. While its focus is on the treatment of Sex Dysfunctions, it is of much broader usage. The ideas offered are easily transferable to other topics of focus in therapy – marriage, OCD, anxiety, behaviors, depression – and it goes far in living up to a rather boastful title of “The” handbook of brief sex therapy.
