This second edition of Handbook of Clinical Sexuality for Mental Health Professionals is a thoroughly revised and expanded edition of their first indispensable Handbook .
The Handbook of Clinical Sexuality for Mental Health Professionals was designed by psychiatric educators to enable all mental health professionals to more skillfully and competently treat the common sexual concerns of those who seek their help. Written with a deliberate personal supervisory style, this textbook imparts clear and practical guidance about assessing and treating high prevalence problems that quietly abound in all mental health settings.
The new material of this textbook reflects the changing needs of mental health professionals and covers topics such as erectile dysfunction, great sex, the challenges men and women face when single again, helping the developmentally disabled with sex, and sex and cancer. With a well thought-out and updated organizational structure, this second edition will be even more informative and consequential than their first.
Dr. Levine, Mrs. Risen, and Dr. Althof have collaboratively provided clinical services for sexual problems, conducted research, written articles, and educated mental health professionals for over 25 years at Case Western Reserve University Department of Psychiatry. They co-direct the Center for Marital and Sexual Health in Beachwood, Ohio. The Handbook of Clinical Sexuality for Mental Health Professionals is the culmination of their long partnership.
