Intended primarily for mental health professionals, Demystifying Love deals plainly with topics rarely written about for clinicians. The book discusses in a small package highly readable and useful topics, such as love (as both noun and verb), psychological intimacy, sexual desire, as well as infidelity, both in background concepts and clinical guidelines.

As the book shows, love is the logical point of departure for a clinical understanding of sexuality and its problems. It is the most conventional framework for understanding sexual behaviors, the one that is broadly endorsed across many cultures, often as the ideal context for sexual expression. The book integrates an analysis of love in patients dealing with intimacy, sexual desire, infidelity, forgiveness and reconciliation. Detailed with compelling case studies, the author’s skill as a therapist comes through in the discussion of these topics―many of which are at the heart of numerous couple problems.

In creating this illuminating work for mental health professionals, Dr. Levine may have underestimated its appeal.  Dr. Levine’s ability to shed light on our internal processes as we love and attempt to be loved throughout life may prove to be of interest to a far broader audience.

From the Author:

Although I have been quite pleased with my previous works, I have been most proud of this contribution because it is my "mature" work.  I had to wait until I had many decades of experience to even dare to undertake the challenge of writing about love.  If I were to update it, I would only add topics.  I still find that what I had to say about love, intimacy, desire, and infidelity is what I currently would articulate.  I am pleased that so many therapists and patients have found the book helpful to them in their personal lives.

About the Author:

Stephen B. Levine, M.D., is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. He has written four solo-authored books on sexuality and co-edited the Handbook of Clinical Sexuality for Mental Health Professionals.
