The first book to comprehensively discuss treatment of handicapped persons of all sexual orientations, Sexual Rehabilitation of the Spinal-Cord-Injured Patient is a practical guide to the management of every type of sexual dysfunction arising from spinal cord injury.
Chapters highlight the state-of-the-art in male and female sexual neurophysiology, covering virtually every aspect of diagnosis, management, and coping strategies, including: • medical and surgical management of impotence and infertility • sexual-urinary bionic prostheses • complications of pregnancy • divorce prevention counseling • psychiatric evaluation and treatment • cultural and religious perspectives • homosexuality/transsexuality • holistic massage • adoption • sexual surrogates • sexopharmacology • erection and orgasmic pacemakers • space sexology • future research • biosexual engineering.
A special feature of the book is a list of international sexual referral centers at which patients anywhere in the world may seek appropriate care and assistance.
Sexual Rehabilitation of the Spinal-Cord-Injured Patient's unique focus is on the psychoemotional aspects of sexuality, reminding the reader that sexuality-one of the most intense human emotions-should not be denied the handicapped.
