This comprehensive book offers an in-depth look at sexual functioning with disability and chronic illness. The basics are covered: taking a sexual history, the sexual response cycle, and how sexual functioning changes with age. This book also deals with special issues such as ethical considerations, sexual abuse and disability, and treatment of the partner of the person with a disability. Separate chapters deal with specific illnesses and disabilities, with an explanation of how that illness or disability affects sexuality and sexual functioning in both men and women. Practical issues such as positioning and helpful tips are also defined for each disorder.
