Editorial Reviews

Review

"In summary, my view of the volume is positive, and it is recommended as a useful resource for clinicians and patients alike. The metamessage here is that even in the face of significant mental illness, love, intimacy, and sexuality are possible, manageable, and worthy. That is an important message for clinicians and patients: All are deserving and capable of intimacy and sexuality, including the mentally ill." - PsycCRITIQUES

About the Author

Stephanie Buehler, MPW, PsyD, is director of The Buehler Institute, Irvine, CA, and an internationally recognized psychologist and sex therapist.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Stephanie Buehler has taken an important step in trying to organize what is known about the impact that mental illness can have on a person's sex life. Dr. Buehler does an admirable job of highlighting possible problems and approaches for the therapist, patient, or partner. Her writing style is clear and easy to read, and the book is well organized.

While this book is written for couples, therapists will benefit from it as well. That's because few psychiatrists, psychologists and counselors have any training about the sexual problems that can accompany mental illness. Dr. Buehler does an excellent job of helping the clinician to anticipate issues and to appreciate their impact on both the patient and his or her partner. This book should be read by students in psychology and healthcare professionals in general. It is a helpful and worthy introduction to a very complex subject.

Format: Hardcover
One of the many strengths of this book, though geared towards non-clinical readers, is that it provides an excellent clinical bridge for both new and experienced psychology professionals who are not sex therapists but who whose clients experience sexual difficulties as an aspect of their relationships. It is written an an easily accessible style with clear, concise language. Dr. Buehler comprehensively covers a host of common psychological diagnoses. Specific sexual and relational problems are discussed in each diagnostic category; these then are illustrated by vignettes offered throughout the book. There are "how to" appendices that clearly describe ways to help with problems that are described in the text, giving the reader a clear map of how to achieve success.

This book is intelligently written, neither talking down to the reader nor making assumptions about what the reader already knows. Highly recommended.
