"Leiblum has assembled an impressive array of experts in sexual health to illustrate a wide range of clinical interventions for individuals distressed by low sexual desire. Chapters discuss psychotherapeutic treatments that target predisposing, precipitating, and maintaining psychological factors, along with treatments that address biological facets of sexual desire and intimacy. Detailed clinical examples are provided. All clinicians will benefit from the different theoretical and clinical perspectives described in this book." - Anita H. Clayton, David C. Wilson Professor of Psychiatry, University of Virginia, USA
"Treating sexual desire problems is rarely easy, but often very rewarding. This outstanding casebook enhances our understanding of both the complexities of these difficulties and the possibilities for meaningful change. Experienced therapists will feel quite at home with the perspectives of the many creative contributors to this volume, and students will find it an enlightening, inspiring text for a wide range of courses on human sexuality, sexual dysfunction, and couple therapy." - Alan S. Gurman, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry and Director of Family Therapy Training, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, USA
"A remarkably useful and important contribution. The introductory chapter reflects Leiblum's years of insightful work and can stand alone as a comprehensive review of the research and clinical issues that need to be considered in treating desire disorders in men and women. Subsequent chapters from other esteemed experts cover an array of relevant and interesting topics. Taken together, the volume synthesizes the foremost thinking in the field. It offers valuable information and guidance for practicing clinicians as well as graduate students, psychology interns, and psychiatric residents." - John Wincze, Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Brown University, USA
