Successful treatment of sexual disorders is a multifaceted task, complicated by the need to understand the interaction of a variety of psychological and physiological processes. The therapy of sexual difficulties is made more difficult by the pervasive sense of shame that is part and parcel of every intimate discussion of sexual matters.'Sex therapy' has progressed radically since the days when Masters and Johnson first published their groundbreaking work. To addresses the nature and treatment of sexual dysfunction, the contributors of this volume offer clinical techniques derived from sex therapy, couples and marital therapy, behavior therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. Theoretical concepts are presented to help the reader understand the reasons behind the most effective and up-to-date therapeutic interventions for the treatment of each of the sexual dysfunctions listed in the DSM IV.Treating Sexual Disorders is written with wisdom, kindness, and empathy for clinicians and their clients. Crafted to be accessible to novice clinicians, and experienced therapists, as well as experts in sexual dysfunction, the book is filled with down-to-earth advice and case examples. Each chapter author is an experienced therapist who presents his or her own personal experience of working with sexual issues. The reader will find a variety of examples of therapeutic methods of dealing with the special transference/countertransference issues that occur in the treatment of clients with sexual dysfunction.
