about

Psychovenereology investigates the psychological factors in human disease (i.e. personality and lifestyle) and their effect on the rate of contraction of sexually transmitted diseases. It also describes the associated illnesses among people who contract sexually related disease and how social mores affect the individual's perception of the disease and how that perception, in turn, affects compliance with treatment. The book also addresses the whole chain of events ranging from high-risk behavior and its psychological determinants to the direct causes of infections and their psychological implications. Concentrating on the homosexual male, this book describes the growing field of psychovenereology and suggests educational and preventative techniques which can help break the psychological patterns of infection related behavior.
