Sexuality Counseling : Theory, Research, and Practice (Paperback) (Christine Murray)
about this item
Sexuality Counseling: Theory, Research, and Practice is a core text for courses on sexuality counseling or sex therapy found in many counseling programs, particularly marriage and family therapy programs. Christine Murray, Amber Pope, and Benjamin Willis present a comprehensive, in-depth, and practice focused approach to working with clients around issues of sexuality. The book presents an integrative, multi-level framework that addresses various levels which people experience sexuality – physiological, psychological, gender identity, sexual orientation, relational, cultural/contextual. The book will be focused on practical strategies for assessment and intervention, which will include cases, exercises, ethical discussions, and guided reflection exercises. The book will be in-line with the new DSM-V classification criteria for sexuality related diagnosis.
Sexuality Counseling: Theory, Research, and Practice begins by presenting the framework and presenting the overarching themes of the book. It then will move into assessment, general intervention, lifespan development, mental health, gender identity, sexual orientation, intimate relations, cultural and contextual factors, and positive sexuality.
