Overview

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the focus in sex therapy was on behavior change. Sex therapists then usually acted as guides, describing techniques and assigning sensate-focused homework. In the 1990s, the availability of a wealth of new information and procedures, combined with our current understanding of the significance of such factors as family-of-origin issues and patient emotions and cognitions, has brought the practice of sex therapy to a new level of sophistication. Designed as a succinct guide to contemporary sex therapy, this book provides a state-of-the-art, empirically based overview of the most common sexual dysfunctions, and a step-by-step manual
for their assessment and treatment.
