Editorial Reviews

A sex therapist draws on her treatment of 6,000 patients to present 32 case studies offering other clinicians insights on sexual desire disorders and therapeutic approaches. She takes an integrated biopsychosocial approach, giving weight to the neurophysiological underpinnings of sexual behaviors as well as to psychodynamic factors and environmental determinants. She also looks at psychiatric disorders that can lead to loss of sexual desire and at organic causes, such as medical conditions, drugs, and aging. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
