Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In summary, my view of the volume is positive, and it is recommended as a useful resource for clinicians and patients alike. The metamessage here is that even in the face of significant mental illness, love, intimacy, and sexuality are possible, manageable, and worthy. That is an important message for clinicians and patients: All are deserving and capable of intimacy and sexuality, including the mentally ill." - PsycCRITIQUES
