Review:

"This state-of-the-art fourth edition nicely integrates psychosocial, biological, and medical information and treatment protocols. Presenting a variety of exciting advances in the field, the book is well organized and includes helpful chapter introductions. The tables that are incorporated into most chapters are particularly useful for graduate teaching. This is an ideal text for graduate sex therapy education, and it will also serve as a valuable and useful resource for training medical and nursing professionals."--Marsha T. Carolan, PhD, LMFT, Michigan State University "This is a time of vigorous debate and reappraisal of sexuality and its problems, fueled by the need to balance new pharmacological interventions with appropriate psychological interventions. The previous edition of this book saw a shift to a model of care that combines both of these approaches, and the fourth edition reinforces this integrative emphasis. The main themes continue and have been updated, and with many of the chapters written by new authors, there are a variety of fresh perspectives. Invaluable reading for anyone training in or practicing sex therapy, this work has become the 'gold standard' text in the field."--John Bancroft, MD, Senior Research Fellow and former Director, Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction  "With this fourth edition, Leiblum demonstrates once again why she is this generation’s leader in the education and training of sex therapists. This outstanding, well-regarded text should be on the shelf of every practicing sex therapist and trainee. The chapters are well written, well organized, interesting, and timely. The liberal use of case study material enriches each chapter by illustrating the practical uses of the concepts described. As with previous editions, this book will be required reading in my graduate-level sex therapy courses."--Daniel N. Watter, EdD, private practice, Parsippany, New Jersey; Adjunct Professor of Psychology, Seton Hall University and Fairleigh Dickinson University "This fourth edition is a 'must-have' for all clinicians working with sexual complaints and issues. Leiblum has assembled a truly multidisciplinary cadre of leading experts in the various subfields within sexuality practice. Based on cutting-edge research, all chapters optimally combine diagnostic and assessment issues with treatment recommendations, and are illustrated by in-depth, informative case examples and commentary. The book also addresses debates surrounding diagnostic issues, the integration of mental health and medical expertise, and more. I plan to use this text with third-year obstetrics and gynecology residents in a sexual medicine rotation. It is also ideal for graduate-level sex therapy students in a variety of mental health disciplines."--Lori A. Brotto, PhD, RPsych, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of British Columbia, Canada  "A silver anniversary is an important milestone worth celebrating, and this landmark text remains crucial and invigorating after more than a quarter-century. The fourth edition reflects many exciting, continuing advances in knowledge about sex and intimate relationships. It recognizes the need to assess and treat individuals and couples on both the psychological and physical levels, offering a balanced, integrative, and accessible understanding of each problem area discussed. This book is certainly a key text for trainee sex therapists, medical and nursing students, and practicing clinicians, and I intend to recommend it across a multidisciplinary training class of postgraduates."--Kevan R Wylie, MD, Editor-in-Chief, Sexual and Relationship Therapy; Porterbrook Clinic and Sheffield Hallam University, UK

"Twenty three prestigious authors, academicians and clinicians have contributed to the fourth edition of this large comprehensive body of work. A multitude of challenging sexual complaints are fully described and attention given to the most current, integrated, evidence-based, clinically sophisticated methods." (Metapsychology Online Reviews 2006-12-02)

"An amazing overview of sex therapy by highly respected specialists with the most up-to-date knowledge in the field....The book is edited so well that it reads as if all of the chapters are written, beautifully, by one single expert....The case examples are extremely helpful and convey in practice the theory and research so thoroughly elaborated in each chapter....This text is extremely comprehensive, with chapters on complicated topics....This is a remarkable textbook that can add enormously to a clinician's knowledge." (Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic 2006-12-02)

"The presence of the heavy hitters in the field is one of the strengths of this volume as it gives the reader a view of the cutting edge of research and practice in sex therapy....A well-edited book that offers a clinically focused look from an expert's perspective, at the current status of sex therapy. It is appropriate as a text for a graduate course in sex therapy or for anyone who wants an update on current practices in this field. In addition, a number of chapters have relevance for anyone conducting therapy." (Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy 2006-12-02)

"This highly readable book is of value to most practitioners working with adults, even if their caseload is general and not specific to sex therapy....4 Stars!" (Doody's Review Service 2006-12-02)
