Reviews and Endorsements

'Sex, Mind, and Emotion firmly establishes the contemporary clinical relevance of a psychoanalytic perspective on all aspects of human sex and sexuality. [...] It does this in a non-tribalistic way and still manages to achieve a synthesis of diverse theoretical perspectives on the clinical problems linked with human sexuality [...]. It relocates sex and sexual behaviour squarely within their psychosocial, developmental and - most importantly - affective contexts. In sum, its clinical relevance is arguably so broad that no mental health clinician should be without a copy.'
- Professor Phil Richardson, Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, University of Essex

'Anyone tired of mechanistic, superficial approaches to sexual dysfunction, or of psychotherapeutic methods that disregard human sexuality entirely, will find the antidote in this book. It restores human sexuality to its appropriate place, demonstrating again and again the interrelatedness of human sexuality, emotions and cognition. Although they differ in the extent to which they address it, or even realise it, all psychological therapists are working in the field of human sexuality. They will find this excellent book to be a superb resource.'
- Professor Glenys Parry, University of Sheffield School of Health & Related Research
