In this book, the essential principles of sex therapy are outlined and illustrated.

Because sexual problems are related to many aspects of life, the author argues that helping people with sexual problems is most effective when medical, psychological, and relationship issues are explored in a systematic way; suitable remedies can then be implemented.

The process of sex therapy, from initial assessment to termination, is described. For the therapist, the first task is to understand the nature of the problem, and assess accurately whether it is medical-, psychological-, or relationship-oriented, or perhaps a combination of all these factors. Medical problems should be addressed first. The book focuses on the assessment, management, and treatment of sexual problems, with medical, psychological, and relationship therapies. Strategies to avoid common mistakes, and to maximise potential for positive change, are demonstrated. Many case studies enliven the text.

The effective therapist needs to create a positive physical and emotional environment for the client, with a strong working alliance between therapist and client. It is vital for the therapist to have current knowledge about sexual problems, an accepting attitude, and the skills to deal with sexual and relationship problems. The therapist's personality, degree of empathy, enthusiasm, and ability to promote optimism contribute to the effectiveness of therapy.

The book will be of value to gynaecologists, physicians, sexual health physicians, men's health physicians, women's health physicians, psychiatrists, endocrinologists, general practitioners, oncologists, dermatologists, nurses, psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, and to students in these disciplines.
