“This book is must reading for all who practice marital and sex therapy. The case studies really bring the technology to life. Approaches that seem abstract and technical are transformed into personal, humanistic accounts of change. Plain and simple, it is a great book.”

—Neil S. Jacobson, Ph.D.

“This extraordinary book is must reading for all sex therapists, couple therapists, and family therapists. Rosen and Leiblum, leading sex therapist experts for over two decades, have pulled together many of the most experienced and creative therapists in the field to offer fascinating clinical descriptions of their evolving work. We live in a time of changing mores regarding sexual behavior, which make our knowledge of sex therapy all the more important. This book shows a broad range of sophisticated approaches to sex therapy, which take into account the complexities of biological, psychological, couple, family of origin, life cycle, and systems issues. The cases are compelling, well written, described with all the vicissitudes of human problems. There is no magic here, just solid, thoughtful, creative approaches to real life clinical issues.”

—Monica McGoldrick. A.C.S.W., Ph.D., Director, Family Institute of New Jersey

“Through case examples from leaders in the field, this book surveys contemporary theory and clinical practice in sex therapy. Each chapter is unique, revealing its author's clinical and personal style, which makes the volume interesting. Many approaches to treating problems of low sexual desire are showcased, reflecting the field's current maturation. Examples of treatment for sexual performance difficulties through integrated medical and therapeutic interventions are sophisticated and up to date. This readable book will be of interest to today's clinicians and tomorrow's scholars.”

—David Schnarch, Ph.D.

“... an excellent collection of chapters written by experienced therapists, who detail their work with an openness and self-reflection that is welcome and enormously helpful. The book should have appeal to a wide range of audiences. Those in the field will find the approaches and techniques described validating and broadening; mental health professional who do not specialize in treating people with sexual difficulties will expand their diagnostic and therapeutic considerations, and young therapists who have gotten interested in integrating sexual approaches in their work will derive much from the shared wisdom of the group represented in the book. ...a superb book; it is authoritative and informative, and presents a wide range of material in a way that should enhance most therapists' skills." Derek C. Polonsky, M.D., Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School. Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy.
