Abstract

Sexual Dysfunctions may occur in otherwise healthy persons but they are also seen in association with all the known psychiatric syndromes. Moreover, the relationship between the psychiatric syndrome and sexuality can vary in many ways; hence the clinical problems presented by the treatment of the sexual dysfunction of different patients with similar psychiatric symptoms may differ considerably depending on the precise relationship between the disorder and the sexual problem. In addition, various psychiatric disorders have different prognoses and require different management. For these reasons the clinician who undertakes sexual therapy has an advantage if he is skilled in the diagnosis and management of psychiatric disorders.
