Sexual Dysfunction: A Guide for Assessment and Treatment

Synopsis

This fully revised and updated volume provides a state-of-the-science 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--desire disorders, arousal disorders, orgasm disorders, and sexual pain disorders - describing what is currently known about clinical presentation, prevalence, and etiological factors. The authors then address the practical tasks of clinical evaluation and intervention, including expanded coverage of how to integrate medical and psychosocial assesment findings into a coherent case formulation. Clearly explaining basic strategies and methods for working with clients, the second edition is illustrated with all new case material. Other new features include information on the latest biomedical and pharmacological treatments, such as Viagra; updated research data and references; and quick-reference tables to guide in treatment planning for each type of disorder.
