Reviews

"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 "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 "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 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 Universi
