The fifth volume in the more focused Innovations in Clinical Practice series addresses many of the issues associated with human sexuality and its relationship to mental health. The volume contains a number of therapist guides and patient handouts in addition to the outstanding articles on a wide variety of subjects pertinent to the topic. Other books in this series are Focus on Violence Treatment & Prevention, Focus on Groups, Couples, & Family Therapy, Focus on Adults, Focus on Children & Adolescents, and Focus on Health and Wellness.

"Focus on Sexual Health more than lives up to its advanced billing. Case examples, 'how-to" tools and handouts along with clinical instruments practitioners can easily put to use abound. The major topical areas are covered putting needed applied information at the fingertips of busy practitioners."
