Editorial Reviews

`the volume should stand as a good sourcebook for some years to come ... The book makes a serious contribution to an area which is so far relatively under-researched, and should be welcomed as such ... researchers, therapists and libraries would be the weaker for not possessing a copy.'Michael Crowe, Sexual and Marital Therapy, Vol. 10, No. 1, 1995
