Summary

In this challenging, often controversial volume, prominent clinicians present their varied views about intimacy, sex, and gender issues that affect family process, therapy, and not least of all, themselves. Delineating the sexual and intimacy structures that exist in families, contributors demonstrate how these structures determine the nature of close relationships. They also explore gender differences in the definition, expectation, and experience of intimacy and the interrelationships among caring, intimacy, and sexuality.
