  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. ‘Adolescence’, Pregnancy and Abortion: Constructing a Threat of Degeneration

    Routledge congratulates Professor Catriona Macleod whose book ‘Adolescence’, Pregnancy and Abortion: Constructing a Threat of Degeneration has been awarded the 2011 Distinguished Publication Award of the Association for Women in Psychology!

    The Distinguished Publication Award (DPA) recognizes works that make significant and substantial contributions to research and theory that advance our understanding of the psychology of women and that promote the achievement of the goals of the Association for Women in Psychology.

    ‘Adolescence’, Pregnancy and Abortion: Constructing a Threat of Degeneration asks why, despite evidence to the contrary, does the narrative of the negative consequences of teenage pregnancy, abortion and childbearing persist? The author argues that the negativity surrounding early reproduction is underpinned by a particular understanding of adolescence, and traces the invention of "adolescence" and the imaginary wall that the notion constructs between young people and adults.

  10. Individualizing Gender and Sexuality

    Nancy Chodorow, in her groundbreaking book The Reproduction of Mothering, quite simply changed the conversation in at least three areas of study: psychoanalysis, women's studies, and sociology.

    In her latest book, Individualizing Gender and Sexuality, she examines the complexity and uniqueness of each person's personal creation of sexuality and gender and the ways that these interrelate with other aspects of psychic and cultural life.

    She brings her well-known theoretical agility, wide-ranging interdisciplinarity, and clinical experience to every chapter, advocating for the clinician's openness, curiosity, and theoretical pluralism.
