Men, Women and Infertility: Intervention and Treatment Techniques is a book for medical and psychological professionals which gives concrete strategies to help patients deal with the stresses of infertility: the invasive medical treatments, the guilt, depression, shame, pessimism, anxiety, relationship and sexual problems, and assaults to self esteeem and sexual self esteem. Cognitive behavioral and imagery techniques are shown through case studies. There is a chapter on helping pregnant women patients with a prior history of miscarriage to manage their anxiety during subsequent pregnancies. There are two chapters on sexuality, looking at sexual trauma and at gender differences in how men and women react to sexuality during infertility.

From the Publisher
Men, Women, and Infertility explores the impact of infertility on virtually
every aspect of personality. Aline Zoldbrod, a certified sex therapist as well
as a licensed psychologist, looks at some of the most important but neglected
questions facing infertile couples. Men, Women, and Infertility is the first
book written expressly for the professionals - therapists, infertility nurses
and doctors - who help couples cope with these painful issues. Yet at the same
time, it is accessible to the patients themselves. It validates many of their
fears and questions and lets them know that they are far from alone.
