This book has become well established as the leading international reference on sexual deviation. The Third Edition builds on the outstanding success of its predecessors, and offers readable, personal, and the most up-to-date accounts of findings in the clinical, experimental, and academic aspects of all fields dealing with sexual deviation.
Throughout the book there is emphasis on clinical treatments, supported by a summary of the latest experimental findings on the biology of sexual behaviour. Distinguished practitioners and academic experts discuss the most recent advances in their fields from a psychiatric, legal, psychotherapeutic, and behaviour therapy point of view, particularly in relation to sex offenders. They also cover significant advances in the psychotherapeutic treatment of gender disorders and homosexuality and there is a new section on child sexual abuse and the resulting effects on adults.
The third edition of Sexual Deviation will be required reading for all professionals dealing with sexual deviation.- psychiatrists, psychoanalysis, clinical psychologists, counselors, forensic psychiatrists, lawyers, magistrates, probation officers, and criminologists.
