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.
