This book focuses on a specific problem that is frequently encountered in the office of sex and family therapists, as well as health psychologists and primary care physicians: womens sexual desire or lack thereof. Written from the perspective of the sex therapist, the book covers both research and clinical interventions. First several theoretical considerations are explored. Treatment issues are addressed in terms of both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical approaches. Case histories demonstrate the application of a particular model within a practical cognitive-behavioral treatment approach. The book outlines the factors that contribute to the decline in sexual desire in women of various ages. The process of in-depth exploration of the contributing factors and search for increased sexual pleasure and desire is a comprehensive one, including various steps, which are described in detail. These steps can be undertaken with the help and guidance of a professional therapist in the field or by the woman herself.
