The leading clinical reference and text in the field, originally developed by 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 integrate 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.

New to This Edition

Reflects major advances in sexual medicine and changes in the DSM-5. Chapters on infidelity, body image, and noncoercive and coercive paraphilias. Chapters on sexuality and infertility, disability-affirmative therapy, and sexually transmitted infections. Expanded lifespan focus: chapters on adolescents/young adults and older adults. Many new authors and extensively revised chapters.

"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 University Calumet
