Reviews

"This revised and expanded fifth edition covers a number of new topics. It provides a valuable overview of the broadening context of sex therapy and its interaction with sexual medicine."--John Bancroft, MD, Senior Research Fellow and former Director, Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction "A genuine delight to read. Each chapter synthesizes current research as it applies to clinical practice. Contributors include most of the thought leaders in the field, whose translation of research into practice is highlighted by a case example in each chapter. Experienced clinicians will use this as a reference book, and it should be required reading in all postgraduate clinical psychology programs."--R. Taylor Segraves, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), Case Western Reserve University "Comprehensive and invaluable. Chapters by leaders in the field integrate multiple perspectives: physiological, medical, lifespan development, cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and relational, all viewed within an awareness of sociocultural norms, as well as of diverse needs and desires. The fifth edition covers all of the traditional forms of sexual difficulty, as well as important, emerging approaches to treating gender dysphoria, pedophilia, and infidelity, and treatment for persons with disabilities and chronic illness, among other essential topics. This volume should be a required text for all graduate students in the mental health professions and is an essential handbook for a wide range of practitioners."--Peter Fraenkel, PhD, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology and Master's in Mental Health Counseling Program, The City College of the City University of New York "The fifth edition of this valuable book does not disappoint. Chapters by respected clinicians reflect the dual vantage points of clinical wisdom and current research, and illuminate the terrain of sexual challenges, relationships, gender, orientation, culture, and life stage. The volume's strengths include integrative clinical approaches, case discussions, and treatment algorithms. I will use this book as a text in my graduate courses and postgraduate trainings; chapters can serve as stand-alone discussions of current topics in sex therapy. This is not a primer, but a sophisticated, accessible, and lively accounting of how sex therapists approach clinical concerns. Don't bother making a place for this book on your shelf--it will never leave your desk."--Sallie Foley, LMSW, School of Social Work, University of Michigan "With profound honesty and insight, this fifth edition reexamines the state of the art of the evolving discipline of sex therapy. Binik, Hall, and their contributing authors rigorously review the diagnosis and treatment of sexual issues as multifaceted as we humans ourselves. With compelling clarity and humility, the authors discuss how our understandings of human sexuality and gender are changing, and the impact on clinical practice. The entire volume points toward the importance of an interdisciplinary, integrated approach. In addition to being a 'must read' for all those practicing sex therapy, this book also should be included in both mental health and medical curricula."--David C. Treadway, PhD, couple therapist in private practice, Weston, Massachusetts "This outstanding book expands the role of the sex therapist from a primary focus on the treatment of sexual dysfunctions to working with an array of sexual issues. The fifth edition provides a wealth of knowledge for practicing clinicians. It is an essential text for sex therapy and human sexuality courses."--Joseph L. Wetchler, PhD, Marriage and Family Therapy Program, Purdue University Calumet "A genuine delight to read. Each chapter synthesizes current research as it applies to clinical practice.
