"By far the best professional book ever published about understanding, assessing, and treating male sexual dysfunction."
Sexual dysfunctions in men, such as erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory disorders, and low sexual desire, are typically sources of significant distress for men. This book, being published with the companion volume Sexual Dysfunction in Women provides general therapists with practical, yet succinct evidence-based guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the most common male sexual disorders encountered in clinical practice. It assumes that mental health professionals and other clinicians without expertise in the field of sex therapy have much to offer these men by combining a multidisciplinary understanding of issues surrounding sexual problems with their general clinical knowledge and expertise. With tables and marginal notes to assist orientation, the book is designed for quick and easy reference while at the same time providing more in-depth understanding for those desiring it. The book can serve as a go-to guide for professional clinicians in their daily work and is an ideal educational resource for students and for practice-oriented continuing education.

From the reviews:
“An easily digestible 100-page manual … on how to effectively diagnose and treat the most common causes of male sexual dysfunction.“A notable advantage of the book is the thorough overview of each disorder … Later in the book, each of the four most common disorders [low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction (ED), premature ejaculation, and delayed and inhibited ejaculation] is explored and discussed in greater detail, with a focus on diagnosis, comorbidities, and current best treatment.“Sexual Dysfunction in Men is written in a clear and concise manner that engages the reader regardless of level of expertise in the field. Rowland strikes a delicate balance by making the book easy for the layperson to understand and directly clinically applicable for the seasoned mental health professional. Clinicians with limited exposure to male sexual dysfunction will find this book particularly useful both as a clinical guide and as a reference resource.”
