This synergistic assembly of expert voices is a classic text that should be a standard reference on the bookshelf of every clinician.” — Jeffrey K. Zieg, PhD, The Milton H. Erickson Foundation

Thankfully, the Quickies 3 therapist-authors share inspiring and creative clinical wisdom in responding to everything form "bad orgasms" through overcoming porn and infidelity, to finding intimacies despite cross-cultural and gender-fluid differences, and even addressing sexual violence.
