The authors do not specialize in, nor seek, patients with sexually deviant behavior. Occasionally, however, such patients have sought and received psychoanalytic treatment from them. . . . As the authors worked with them on their current thought processes and their transference responses to them, the authors were able to help each patient become aware of, understand, and resolve their underlying unconscious sexual conflicts. During each treatment, the authors carefully avoided being influenced and biased by the psychiatric or psychoanalytic literature. Instead, they investigated psychoanalytically each of their patients' unconscious minds to discover and help the patients to understand their individual and distinct psychodynamics. Through this approach, they corroborated many of Freud's and his follower's findings, and discovered new facets of their patients' respective illnesses.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a book of hope and compassion that describes in detail the analytic processes in the treatment of men whose sexualities are conflicted. The authors eschew political correctness as well as restrictive dogma. They provide their patients with the freedom to choose what they want and need rather than something imposed by the treaters. It is written by two psychoanalysts with many years experience helping men and women. It offers therapists models for empathic and effective treatment and practice. -- Sylvia Brody Ph.D, private practice
Drs. Loretta and Felix Loeb's recent book Helping Men . . . is a compact and rich work . . . In outlining psychoanalytic thinking regarding sexual deviant behavior, Drs. Loeb remind us that homosexuality, fetishism, transvestitism and, it would seem, gender identity disorder, represent a spectrum of compromise solutions to the threat of castration. . . . The authors take some pains to point out that the sexual deviations themselves are not, in any of the adult cases, the stated reason for starting treatment but emerge as sources of conflict and distress in the unfolding of the analyses. . . . Drs. Loeb do us a favor by reminding us of what we have already discovered, how those key discoveries can help men and how necessary it is to be optimistic, firm, and focused in obtaining optimal clinical results with them. -- Douglas Van der Heide
