What effect does growing up in an ethnic minority and perhaps in an immigrant family have on development? That is the overarching question Latina and Latino Children's Mental Health sets out to answer. The work examines all of the myriad physical, psychological, social, and environmental factors that undermine or support healthy development in Latino American children, from biology to economics to public policy. The first volume of this two-volume set focuses on early-life experiences and the second on youth/adolescent issues, treating such topics as children's development of a sense of self, development of linguistic skills, peer relationships, sexual orientation, and physical development. The work analyzes familial relationships, often an important resource that helps young people build resilience despite the stresses of migration. And it looks at patterns of behavior, social status, and social-goal orientations that differentiate Latino/a children and adolescents from their African American and European American peers.
The inalienable right to have children is a cornerstone to western societies, and yet for many people, surrogacy remains their only option. This important new book explores this highly contested area through a critical psychology perspective, discussing the many socio-cultural issues and health concerns faced by surrogates, prospective parents and clinical providers. Including empirical research conducted by the authors with both heterosexual and homosexual couples, this is the first book to look holistically and cross-culturally at this provocative topic, and will be of interested to students and researchers within health psychology, gender studies and social work.
In the last decade, much of the clinical interest in the field of infertility has focused on advancing reproductive techniques and has often under-appreciated the role that male sexuality plays in reproductive problems. Male sexual function is an integral part of reproduction, and the treatment of sexual dysfunction is an important component for any couple seeking fertility. In some cases, treatment of sexual dysfunction may obviate the need for more invasive cures through advanced reproductive techniques. Thanks to recent clinical and scientific advances in male sexual medicine, the management of men's sexual dysfunction is often more effective and less invasive than how it was historically described.
Men's Sexual Health and Fertility is the only resource that focuses on the interplay and interconnections between male sexual dysfunction and male factor infertility, gathering insightful data from a panel of experts in male sexual medicine for clinicians who treat couples with fertility issues due to male sexual dysfunction. Chapters discuss advances in the field of men's sexual medicine, including the latest treatment for erectile dysfunction, the most up-to-date understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of ejaculation, and the growing body of evidence that low testosterone and male infertility are intimately related. As such, this book provides important information in order to be able to better understand the link between sexual dysfunction and infertility and, most importantly, to better treat male sexual dysfunction in the infertile couple.
The treatment, assessment, intervention and evaluation of sexual deviants are topics that have experienced a recent resurgence in the mental health fields, as the number of reported sex abuse cases continues to rise. Practitioners are increasingly faced with both criminal and non-criminal sex offenders with a variety of backgrounds, abuses, and treatment history. Specialists and non-specialists alike are often unprepared and ill-equipped for the myriad of disorders prevalent in today's society. "Treating Sexual Offenders" provides the therapist with a guide to the assessment, treatment, and evaluation of a number of different disorders, including fetishisms, transvestic fetishisms, exhibitionism, frottage, pedophilia, sexual sadism, sexual masochism, telephone scatologia, voyeurism, rape, child molestation, and incest. Through extensive consideration of current research, theory and practice, the authors provide the clinician with the means to have a continued positive impact on the sex offender, from assessment to post-treatment evaluation and follow-up.
