Heterosexual Dysfunction: Evaluation of Treatment Procedures

  • Diane S. Fordney-Settlage
Part of the Perspectives in Sexuality book series (Persp. Sex.)


As professional and public awareness of the potential for treatment of sexual problems increases, there are an ever-expanding number of available therapeutic services. As researchers as well as clinicians, we find ourselves in the dilemma of maintaining services without having good research data to support our treatment techniques and therapy. So-called successful sexual dysfunction techniques are often based on isolated case reports. However, with few exceptions these techniques and reports of techniques generally lack retrospective and prospective predictive ability, standardization, objectivity parameters, detailed outcome evaluation, and adequate follow-up. Often they tend to be anecdotal and limited in their ability to provide usable information to professionals in the same or allied areas.
