  1. Fat Lives: A Feminist Psychological Exploration

    Within the context of the current ‘obesity debate’, this book investigates the embodied experience of ‘being large’ from a critical psychological perspective. Using poststructuralist and feminist theories, the author explores the discourses available to and used by self-designated ‘fat’ individuals, as well as the societal power relationships that are produced by these.

    Using rich case material and research presented by distinguished authorities in the fields of sex, couple, family, and psychotherapy, this edited book contributes to our efforts to help individuals and couples increase their sexual satisfaction.

  4. Rewriting the Rules

    "We all struggle with relationships but now the rules have changed. We need a new rule book, and this is it." - Dorothy Rowe, Psychologist and Writer

    Rewriting the Rules is a friendly guide through the complicated - and oftentimes contradictory - rules of love: the advice that is given about attraction and sex, monogamy and conflict, gender and commitment.

  5. Perversion

    Perversion is one of Lacan's three main diagnostic ontological structures. This book provides a close reading of what Lacan said about perversion and its substructures. Lacanian theory is carefully explained in accessible language, and perversion is elucidated in terms of its etiology, characteristics, symptoms, and fundamental fantasy. It offers clinicians a guide to making differential diagnoses between neurotic and perverse patients, and provides a treatment model for working with perversion versus neurosis.

  6. Responsive School Practices to Support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, & Questioning Students

    Series: School-Based Practice in Action

    The needs and rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students and their families are oftentimes ignored, generally misunderstood, and only rarely given priority by the school system. This book will provide the school-based mental health practitioner with the tools necessary to implement change in partnership with school administrators, teachers, parents, and other community stakeholders.

  9. Handbook of LGBT-Affirmative Couple and Family Therapy

    The editors and contributors of this comprehensive text provide a unique and important contribution to LGBT clinical literature. 

    Spanning 30 chapters, they discuss the diverse and complex issues involved in LGBT couple and family therapy. 

    In almost 15 years, this book provides the first in-depth overview of the best practices for therapists and those in training who wish to work effectively with LGBT clients, couples, and families need to know, and is only the second of its kind in the history of the field.

  10. New Directions in Sex Therapy

    New Directions in Sex Therapy: Innovations and Alternatives focuses on cutting-edge, therapy paradigms as alternatives to conventional clinical strategies. With each passing year, the treatment of sexual problems seems to emphasize more medical and pharmacological interventions. There is correspondingly less interest in the experiences of the individuals or couples involved. This book expands the definition of our field.

    This book is intended for anyone who deals with sexual issues and concerns in therapy–clinicians of every kind, novices and advanced practitioners–rather than only those who define themselves as sex therapists.
