Overview

Sex therapy has changed radically since the days when Masters and Johnson first published their groundbreaking work. Treating Sexual Disorders addresses the current thought on the subject of sexual dysfunction as contributors share clinical techniques and case studies derived from sex therapy, couples and marital therapy, behavior therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. Theoretical concepts are also presented to clarify the reasoning behind the most effective and up-to-date interventions for each of the sexual dysfunctions listed in the DSM IV.Written with wisdom, empathy and down-to-earth advice for both clinicians and their clients, this volume offers valuable insights for both novice and experienced therapists, as well as experts in sexual dysfunction.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
