The optimal approach in the therapy of psychogenic sexual dysfunction 41

He states that because of sexuologist's patient specifics, choosing the optimal mode of treatment may be related to some difficulties. Some patients' expectations, requests of fast and impressive improvement may be conflicted with the necessity of diagnostic testing and the necessity of choosing optimal treatment for the particular disorder and its context of appearance. The author describes chosen cases and pays attention to the gains resulting from flexible actions of therapist and skilful combinations of the different treatment methods. He underlines the virtues of causal treatment of psychogenic sexual dysfunctions both in couple therapy and in individual psychotherapy.
