The field of sex therapy has changed dramatically since Masters and Johnson were recommending brief, problem-centered treatments that tended to focus on the mechanics of sexuality. With simple cases of premature ejaculation or anorgasmia becoming increasingly rare, clinicians are now utilizing a sophisticated array of multidisciplinary approaches to treat a complex variety of challenging problems and patient populations. Bringing together, under one cover, case studies and clinical discussions by the very authorities whose work is changing the field, Case Studies in Sex Therapy provides a state-of-the-art guide to current clinical practice.

Industry Reviews

"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. "Readers who are familiar with the three earlier volumes by Rosen and Leiblum...are used to thoughtful and well-presented issues that are at the same time scholarly and highly readable. Their latest effort," Case Studies in Sex Therapy," will not disappoint you...Clearly, Rosen and Leiblum have given us another gift. "Case Studies in Sex Therapy" is an ambitious volume covering a broad range of topics discussed by well-known clinicians. It brings us up to date..." --"Journal of Sex Research" .,."surpasses by far all previous sex therapy books that we are aware of in its detailed presentation and analysis of case material. Moreover, cases are presented in the context of brief but up-to-date reviews of the research literature. Our current interns found the case studies rich and fascinating though they had to struggle with some technical/medical jargon with which they were unfamiliar. We recommend this book as essential reading for anyone wishing to get an inside look at what sex therapy looks like today." --"Archives of Sexual Behavior"
