Sexual Dysfunction: A Guide for Assessment & Treatment

Sexual Dysfunction: A Guide for Assessment & Treatment Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive guide for therapists who wish to utilise the latest procedures for treating sexual dysfunctions. Clinician's will benefit from the authors' long years of clinical experience with a variety of sexual dysfunctions, and will also become conversant with the latest procedures from both medicine and psychology in use today. Awareness of the effects of new approaches will prove valuable to those confronting sexual problems. As the authors point out, clinicians with relatively little experience can utilise these programs to treat the majority of sexual dysfunctions with which they are confronted and be confident that their approaches are based on the latest developments in our science. A valuable resource for sex therapists, both experienced and beginners, psychotherapists, family therapists and counsellors.

Synopsis:

An ideal introduction for sex therapy students and trainees, this volume provides an overview of the most common sexual dysfunctions and the full range of assessment and treatment approaches. The book begins with discussions of the main classes of sexual dysfunction, describing what is currently known about clinical presentation, prevalence, and etiological factors. Addressing the practical tasks of clinical evaluation and intervention, the authors clearly explain basic strategies and methods for working with clients.
