Psychological Perspectives on Sexual Problems Summary

Psychological Perspectives on Sexual Problems: New Directions in Theory and Practice by Edited by Jane M. Ussher

Sexuality can be seen as a `problem' by many people being faced with media images and popular ideas of `normal' sexuality. Yet, despite critiques of sexology from authorities in psychoanalysis and feminism, sexuality is felt to be a problem for which help is sought.
In Psychological Perspectives on Sexual Problems the authors critically examine theories of sexuality, but also link them with current clinical practice. Far from just addressing the sexuality of heterosexual, able-bodied individuals they also widen the horizons of psychology to look at positive, empowering practices with groups whose sexuality has often been marginalised, such as those with learning difficulties, gay men with AIDS and women with eating disorders.
This book radically integrates theory and practice and will be invaluable for its positive and enabling perspectives on all sexualities.

Psychological Perspectives on Sexual Problems Reviews

"In this unique, multifarious book, Usher and Baker aim to unite two traditionally contradictory perspectives on sexuality: a theoretical position that criticizes the entire definition of sexual dysfunction and the oppressive role in which it places men and women; and a clinical viewpoint that focuses on the treatment of sexual dysfunction in clinical practice...informative and thorough."
-"Contemporary Psychology
