About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The Art of Sex Coaching also draws from the work of several other sexuality expects such as Betty Dodson, and Joseph Kramer among others, and invites the reader to develop a framework for intervention that best fits their own style of working with people seeking assistance in addressing sexual concerns. Britton also draws limits between what her model can and cannot do, recommending that those who practice coaching be cognizant of the distinction between coaching related to sex and sexuality, and sex therapy.
For clinicians who do not normally work with issues of sex and sexuality, it's important to understand that some of the suggestions provided in "The Art of Sex Coaching", may raise some anxiety, such as when Britton discuses taking a field trip with a client to a sex shop, or when she is discussing "hands on" vs "hands off" models of sex coaching. However, the information provided in Britton's work is easily adaptable to any out patient therapy setting and within the ethical framework adhered to by the clinician. Besides - if one only reads materials that are comfortable, one never has the opportunity to use discomfort to grow. Overall "The Art of Sex Coaching: Expanding Your Practice"- is packed with information and well worth the read!
I did want to make an important correction though. Tolerations and the style of coaching attributed to Cheryl, were actually part of the coaching curriculum designed by Thomas Leonard, founder of Coach U and still taught there today. Cheryl was one of Thomas's early students.
I highly recommend this book. Her style is also delightful to experience.
