The Wiley Handbook of Sex Therapy is a comprehensive and empirically–based review of contemporary theory and practice in the psychotherapeutic treatment of sexual problems. Coverage is in four sections, exploring: (1) treatment of specific sexual problems such as male erectile dysfunction and female orgasmic difficulties; (2) theoretical approaches to sex therapy; (3) sex therapy with specific populations such as older adults and people with intellectual disabilities; and (4) future directions in sex therapy, including the use of mindfulness and internet–based sex therapy. Bringing together knowledge in this field for the first time in decades, this is an integrated and forward–thinking exploration of sex therapy that advocates moving beyond behavioral treatments to a more holistic approach employing a broad range of theories and techniques.
