Sex Therapy

A Practical Guide

Keith Hawton

Sexual problems are a major cause of personal distress and marital breakdown, affecting as many as one in ten of the general population. The author, who has had extensive clinical, research, and teaching experience in the field of sexual dysfunction, has written a very practical account of the nature, causes, assessment and treatment of sexual problems. The various stages of treatment are described in detail, sufficient for therapists who are about to start sex therapy. Experienced therapists will also find this book a source of useful advice. The treatment approach includes behavioral, psychotherapeutic, and educational techniques. In addition to the treatment of couples, the management of sexual problems of individuals without partners and of the physically disabled are also described. Brief counseling and more intensive therapy are covered in full. Practical guidance is backed up by research findings. This book is an up-to-date, straightforward, and practical account which should be of considerable interest to anyone involved in the management of sexual problems.
