Reviews

“This book covers the clinical aspects of sexuality, including basics of sexuality and the sexual response cycle, clinical assessment, and overview of sexual dysfunctions. … The audience includes ‘physicians, practitioners, residents, trainees, and students alike.’ Any providers who address sexuality with their patients/clients would benefit from the information this book presents … . This is a worthy addition to the library of any provider who addresses sexuality and sexual functioning in the clinical setting.” (Brian P. Gomoll, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2017)
