Cognitive-Behavioral Couple Therapy for Sexual Dysfunction (CBCST) provides clinicians and graduate students with a comprehensive biopsychosocial model of useful, practical, empirically-based strategies and techniques to address common sexual dysfunctions. It is the most comprehensive volume describing the couple cognitive-behavioral approach to assessment, treatment, and relapse prevention of sexual dysfunction. The focus is on sexual desire and satisfaction with an emphasis on the Good Enough Sex (GES) model of sharing sexual pleasure rather than an individual perfect intercourse performance test. This title reflects the contributions of Mike Metz to the field of couple sex therapy.
