The leading clinical reference and text in the field, originally developed by the late Sandra Leiblum, this volume addresses the full range of sexual problems and concerns that lead men, women, and couples to seek help. Prominent experts describe cutting-edge assessment and treatment approaches that draw on psychological, interpersonal, and medical interventions. Detailed case examples illustrate how the therapeutic strategies are implemented and shed light on the factors that influence outcomes. The book is grounded in current knowledge about sexuality and sexual functioning across the lifespan. Tightly edited, it features an integrative introduction and conclusion plus a brief editorial commentary at the beginning of each chapter.
