Advances in Human Sexuality

Whether in individual or couples therapy, sexual issues are almost always present, either explicitly or implicitly. Many therapists are reluctant to address sexual issues, either because of their own reticence or because of their lack of knowledge about some aspects of sexuality or about how to therapeutically address sexual matters.
