Review

“Continuing in their fine tradition, Leiblum and Rosen give those of us who are learning, providing, or reflecting on the treatment of sexual problems an opportunity to be with the best thinkers in the field. Hope for medication assistance now abounds, yet the authors succeed in conveying the rich psychological and social landscape of human sexual interaction. No one who reads this book will ever again be tempted to reduce sex therapy to a single paradigm.” –Stephen B. Levine, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, OH”With the growing availability of new medications and treatment options, the new edition of this classic text is extremely timely. Comprehensive and up-to-date, the book highlights the importance of collaboration between medical professionals and sex therapists. A needed focus is placed upon relationship and other variables involved in sexual dynamics and sexual dysfunctions. I am thrilled to see information specific to women, as well as new medical options for men. A ‘must read’ for all professionals treating individuals and couples with sexual dissatisfactions.” –Beverly Whipple, PhD, RN, FAAN, Rutgers–The State University of New Jersey; President, American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists

Not a single major problem or population has been left out, all dealt with by some of the leading practitioners and researchers in the field. Everyone who works with sexual problems, from complete novices to experienced clinicians, can benefit from this book. It will be useful in the classroom, laboratory, and therapy office.” Bernie Zilbergeld, PhD, author of The New Male Sexuality
