Product Description Review Written by master sex therapy clinicians this second edition surpasses its predecessor by offering up-to-date research and clinical insight making a compelling case for its use for systemic sex therapy with couples experiencing sexual problems. This text will serve as an outstanding resource for all clinicians particularly those heavily entrenched in working with individuals and couples. It is an invaluable text for both beginners and seasoned practitioners. I applaud the authors on producing a masterful work and strongly recommend it.― Frank M. Dattilio PhD ABPP works in the department of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School This is much more than a ‘Guide’ The term ‘guide’ is really a humble misnomer. This is in the true term of the word a veritable encyclopedia of all you want to know and need to do systemic sex therapy. Beginning students as well as seasoned professionals will be brought up to date in all the myriad of possible information that makes this humbly-called ‘guide’ a classic source of information and knowledge about sex therapy. I wish I had it when I first started doing couple therapy.― Luciano L'Abate PhD ABEPP is professor emeritus of psychology at Georgia State University It is a pleasure to endorse such a strongly resourced credible and contemporary resource for the practicing sexual and relationship therapist. Throughout the text the authors emphasize the crucial awareness yet problematic dichotomy between psychological and physiological states alongside relational and other co morbid contributors to healthy or otherwise sexuality. The text offers practical tips guidance and tools from a strong clinical background with clear emphasis to systemic practice. Key signposting throughout the text makes this especially meaningful to the audience of modern society with key literature sharing space with other media resources.― Professor Kevan Wylie MD FRCP FRCPsych FRCOG FECSM is a consultant in sexual medicine Sheffield and president World Association for Sexual Health There are three reasons why you should read A Clinician’s Guide to Systemic Sex Therapy . It is the only book that places sex therapy squarely within a family systems approach. In other words it focuses not only on the mechanics and biology but also on the couple relationship. Second it is among the most comprehensive books on sex therapy with sections on diversity diagnosis and ethics. Finally as the title suggests it is the most practical text available with cutting edge techniques described in detail and updated for DSM-V. Every clinician working with couples needs this book.― Mark E. Young PhD works at the Marriage and Family Research Institute at University of Central Florida The only book you need to practice effective sex therapy. Drs. Weeks Gambescia and Hertlein have improved on their original gem and expanded their integrated model to include the latest diagnostic categories of the DSM 5. The authors show how to treat sexual problems within the context of the couple relationship and not as an unconnected "plumbing" problem. This easy-to-use guide that addresses the gamut of sexual and relationship issues belongs every clinician's bookshelf.― Jon Carlson PsyD EdD ABPP CST is a Distinguished Professor of Adlerian Psychology at Adler University in Chicago. The revised updated and expanded edition of A Clinician's Guide to Systemic Sex Therapy ... provides a comprehnsive compendium of up-to-date information for therapists seeking to expand their knowledge and skill in the field of sex therapy... What distinguishes this book from other available sex therapy volumes is that in addition to providing both information and practical treatment guidelines the authors create a convincing case for integrative treatment and in fact the book's introduction provides a comprehensive explanation of the intersystem approach to sex therapy... This textbook is evidence based and up to date making it a valuable resource for novice therapists and veteran sexual health practitioners alike... A Clinician's Guide to Systemic Sex Therapy should be required reading in all sex therapy training programs and is a highly recommended resource and an inspiring contribution to the field." -- Talli Y.
