Additional Information:
"This is an excellent encyclopedia-style book that covers a broad variety of sexual presentations and situations. The writing is well organized and straightforward. Counselors who lack extensive training and education in human sexuality will find this to be a priceless reference for their library."

—Neil Cannon, PhD, LMFT, CST-S

"Counselors often avoid discussing sex with their clients-out of fear of offending or lack of knowledge. This handbook addresses both these issues and infuses a strengths-based, developmentally appropriate, psychoeducational, and sex positive approach to human sexuality counseling in every chapter. Thank you to the editors for producing such a useful and interesting volume."

—Jane Goodman, PhD

"The dozens of sex ed texts I have used and reviewed over the past 25 years have been basically interchangeable. What makes this wonderful book by Schubert and Pope so unique is its novel approach to counseling beyond the typical sex ed concepts. This volume will make an important addition to the bookshelves of all counselors and psychotherapists who need increased comfort in discussing sexual subjects with their clients."

Sexuality is a significant part of the human experience, yet it is often a neglected topic in both counselor training and the counseling process. In this preeminent guide, expert clinicians with a variety of mental health and medical backgrounds write on diverse issues related to sexuality through a radical acceptance lens. Each chapter illustrates an affirmative and expansive approach to sexuality that considers clients' sexual and cultural identities and emphasizes sexual wellness. Students and professionals alike will learn how to respectfully and ethically approach sexuality considerations not commonly mentioned in the professional literature, such as sexuality and disability, healing after sexual violence, older adult sexuality, the impact of chronic illness on sexual expression, and paraphilias.

The text is organized around eight comprehensive parts-Foundations; Physiological and Psychological; Attraction, Orientation, and Gender; Sexual Wellness; Sexual Agency; Approaches to Sexual Divergence; Relationships; and Education-with case examples, "Questions You Always Wanted to Ask," and additional resources interwoven throughout.
