This book is an anthology by 15 pioneering contributors, who reveal not only their personal motivations for entering the field but the way they have shifted social perspectives on sexual compulsivity and addiction. Empathy is present in every chapter of the anthology, which reads like conversations with good friends. These contributors understand the devastating effect addiction can have on a life and on a family. This collaborative anthology offers a personal and historical exploration of the sex addiction and sexual health fields by the clinicians who fought to advance the fields of healthy sexual expression, sex addiction research, addiction recovery and treatment.
