Sexuality and Its Disorders explores sexuality from an evolutionary perspective using powerful, real-life case studies to help readers provide effective guidance around issues relating to sexuality. Drawing on his 30 years of clinical experience and research, author Mike Abrams provides a comprehensive, evidence-based, and clinically-oriented text with cutting-edge coverage throughout. Discussions include the physical and psychological development of sexual identity, the social aspects of sexual behaviour, the many expressions of sexuality, cognitive behaviour treatment of sexual problems, and more. The many perspectives of sexuality are examined with interviews and commentaries from major figures in the field who discuss such topics as the origins of sexuality, the nature of love, the role of attachment, and the treatment of sexual problems.

"In Sexuality and Its Disorders, Mike Abrams shares a wealth of knowledge about sexual matters gleaned from decades of observation and study. He shares fascinating facts, such as the myriad reasons why people have sex in the first place. Who knew that there are scores of reasons that go way beyond the obvious one - people do it for pleasure? Anyone who appreciates that sex is a crucial component of life, and who wonders about its scientific underpinnings, will learn a great deal from this book." -- Elizabeth F. Loftus, PhD
"This is a first-class text on human sexuality. Its scope is wide-ranging with historical and theoretical depth that gives readers a fabulous overview of the field.

And although theoretically eclectic, it uses a sophisticated evolutionary perspective to tie together the fascinating and diverse threads that make up human sexuality." -- David M. Buss
