Sexual Disorders

  • C. Eugene Walker


The techniques available for treating sexually troubled individuals have undergone rapid and dramatic change in the last decade or two. Most of the literature prior to this abounds with interpretations of sexual dysfunction based on Freudian and psychodynamic theory. Earlier treatments of choice were lengthy psychoanalysis or intensive psychodynamic therapy and the outcome was admitted to be poor. Virtually all of the recent developments in this area assume a learning theory etiology for sexual dysfunction and prescribe direct behavioral treatment. Length of treatment has correspondingly decreased, and success rates have risen so that most sex therapists can now approach their patients with considerable optimism regarding the outcome of treatment. The present chapter will survey some of the more effective treatment approaches that are applicable to a variety of sexual disorders.
