Designed to shed light on sexually unusual expression, this unique book will assist helping professionals in their treatments and referrals of persons with sexually unusual life styles and behaviors. Based on the premise, “First, do no harm,” The Sexually Unusual is targeted for all helping professionals with little or no academic or clinical training in sexuality, who encounter clients involved in coercive and non-coercive unusual sexual behaviors. The vast majority of helping professionals, from all disciplines, who have had neither academic nor clinical training in addressing sex-related concerns, will find sensible and empathetic approaches to working with the sexually unusual--pedophiles, obscene phone callers, transvestites, transsexuals, exhibitionists, sexual addicts, and more. A historical perspective broadens the reader's view and displays the evolving and unfolding nature of the human condition.
