Handbook of Clinical Sexuality for Mental Health Professionals
Stephen B. Levine, Candace B. Risen, Stanley E. Althof
Taylor & Francis, Jan 14, 2010 - Psychology - 535 pages
The constantly-changing field inspired the second edition of Handbook of Clinical Sexuality for Mental Health Professionals. In a state-of-the-art guide, Dr. Levine and his associates continue to help professionals with the assessment and treatment of a large array of sexual concerns. Written in a personal, supervisory style, the book will help new therapists anticipate clinical contingencies and help experienced therapists refine their thinking and teaching. Easily accessible, the Handbook is divided into six major sections with helpful annotated references: Being a Therapist; Intimacy; Sexual Dysfunction; Sexual Identity Struggles; The Forgotten; and Additional Vital Topics. Twenty-one chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated, and five new ones have been added. These focus on gay and lesbian life, transitioning to single life, cancer survivorship, the sexual issues of the developmentally challenged, and sex among the aging.

It was the best price in the marketplace; it arrived quickly, and the shipping cost was, of course, excellent. I will return for textbooks and other books in the future. ...
