New Directions in Sex Therapy: Innovations and Alternatives
- Written by Peggy J. Kleinplatz (Editor)
New Directions in Sex Therapy: Innovations and Alternatives focuses on cutting-edge, therapy paradigms as alternatives to conventional sex therapy. Part I highlights the major problems and criticisms facing the field. These chapters issue a challenge to improve clinical practice. Part II demonstrates new approaches to dealing with traditional sex therapy concerns (e.g., lack of desire, erectile dysfunction), as well as innovative goals such as integrating sexuality and spirituality, promoting sexual intimacy in HIV serodiscordant couples, and optimizing erotic potential in the elderly. The book encompasses a wide array of paradigms especially useful in working with sexuality. Replete with useful clinical illustrations to demonstrate these approaches in action, New Directions in Sex Therapy is a critical addition to the library of anyone who deals with sexual issues and concerns in therapy.
