The task of psychosexual medicine is “to help the person first complete the job of expressing, and then hearing, their own story”. The emphasis throughout the Introduction to Psychosexual Medicine, demonstrated through compassionate case studies and thoughtful processes of reflection, is to examine the ‘here and now’, whilst respecting the ‘there and then’. You come away from the text with a greater understanding of the pathophysiological underpinnings of illnesses and conditions, the psychosexual impact these can have on the body, mind and relationships, and the ways in which psychosexual medicine can help.
