This volume describes the treatment of uniquely complex and profound sexual problems that the therapeutic community has been largely unsuccessful in treating. The reader is drawn to understand and even identify with the people experiencing sexual disturbance. This process of identification helps to mitigate the biases that we use to dehumanize the sexually disturbed. This work is developed around a case study format, with chapters on specific psychosexual disturbances. All of these cases experienced early childhood sexual trauma or mislearning that interrupted the course of normal sexual development. Such victims then frequently repeat the learned behavior in later life, acting out the role of perpetrator. In addition to presenting the treatment process as it is formulated in the mind of the therapist, the author offers a blueprint for therapy that makes specific treatment possible for clients with similar disorders. Therapists are also guided in developing an effective clinical presence, covering such matters as initial contact, boundary setting, self awareness, dress, voice tone, and overall demeanor. Strategies for avoiding becoming enmeshed in psychological defenses are presented in detail.
