Working with Sexual Issues in Psychotherapy: A Practical Guide Using a Systemic Social Constructionist Framework
Bloomsbury Publishing, 25 août 2017 - 434 pages
Whilst many psychotherapists work skilfully and creatively with the subject of sex, the lack of professional support systems – such as training and supervision – mean that the topic is often still treated as taboo in the psychotherapy room. This secretive treatment may increase clients' feelings of shame and embarrassment, thus mirroring the confusing views on sexuality in society and leading to the onset and development of sexual dysfunctions.
Bringing the medical perspective of sexology together with systemic psychotherapy informed by social constructionism, this timely book seeks to fill the gap in psychotherapy literature, research and training by providing a theoretical framework, as well as practical guidance, for effective therapeutic interventions in working with sex and sexual relationships in clinical practice.
Exploring topics such as sexual prejudice, the significance of sexual diversity and the assessment and treatment of sexual dysfunctions, enriched with a wealth of engaging case studies, Working with Sexual Issues in Psychotherapy is a fascinating and important read both for students new to this complex topic, and for practitioners looking for a comprehensive source of reference.
