New Direction in Sex Therapy, 2eis founded on the notion that different theoretical perspectives can allow therapists to think broadly about how to deal with sexual concerns. The variety of theoretical orientations represented in this book provides readers with illustrations of how these different models can offer therapists new options in clinical practice, thereby broadening the field of sex therapy. Substantially updated with six new chapters, this second edition still retains the useful clinical illustrations and clear organization that made the book so indispensible to students and practitioners in the field.
