Overview

Recent research indicates that there has been a steady increase in the number of patients seeking help with various sexual desire problems. The Sexual Desire Disorders, an exciting volume from one of the foremost authorities in the field of sex therapy and human sexuality, explores in-depth the human sexual response, with emphasis on various therapeutic approaches to the treatment of sexual dysfunctions and particular disorders of sexual desire. The book examines not only the historical perspectives of these disorders, but the most recent research, thinking, and acceptance of these problems as a real clinical phenomena. This volume focuses primarily on the dysfunctional regulation of sexual motivation. Dr. Kaplan applies her comprehensive, integrated, psychodynamically oriented sex therapy approach when addressing the etiology, clinical features, and diagnostic criteria of these disorders. The author also examines psychiatric disorders that can lead to a loss of sexual desire, as well as some organic causes, including medical conditions, drugs, and age. Finally, Sexual Desire Disorders presents over 30 case studies that cover treatment approaches for a wide variety of sexual desire disorders, ranging from hyperactive sexual desire in a married bisexual man to a loss of sexual desire due to infertility treatment.
