Psychologist Lori S. Katz has just released an excellent and much-needed book,“Treating Military Sexual Trauma” (Springer Publishing, 2015). It features a chapter on healthy sexual functioning after military sexual trauma (MST) based on an interview Lori did with Wendy Maltz LCSW, DST. The book addresses many aspects of recovery and covers topics such as understanding MST, neurobiology, sleep disorders, substance abuse recovery, body memories, cognitive processes, and the application of various counseling techniques for addressing the concerns of MST survivors. Kudos to Lori for creating such a comprehensive resource!

In the May 2009 issue of the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, Dr. Jeanne Shaw presents a detailed review of The Porn Trap. She says that as a seasoned therapist it’s rare to find a book that changes her perspective on a sexual topic, but that’s just what The Porn Trap did. Dr. Shaw describesThe Porn Trap as “a guide developed specifically for people whose porn use is spiraling out of control, who want to stop their destructive behaviors and avoid serious consequences and losses. The book provides an opportunity for porn users and their partners to become aware of risks and negative impacts. It focuses on rebuilding self-respect, achieving recovery, improving intimacy, and developing a satisfying sexual relationship without porn. This book is written in a nonjudgmental, compassionate way, making it valuable for therapists and patients, alike. Conversational writing style and progressive organization allows for easy reading and understanding of a dichotomized and controversial topic.” Dr. Shaw concludes her review saying “The Porn Trap lets people who have run into problems with porn use know that their problems are understandable and they are not alone. It also shows the way to healing so they can separate themselves from porn,reclaim their sexuality, and enjoy self-pleasuring and partner sex in ways that are ultimately more rewarding and life-affirming than what porn has tooffer.” The full review can be obtained through Informaworld http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/content~db=all~content=a910358330 Informaworld
