Treating sexual dysfunction in general practice


A method of training general practitioners in the treatment of sexual dysfunction is described, using fortnightly seminars at which the doctors discussed the continuing care of their patients.

Doctors took on patients presenting in their practices and treated couples together, where possible, using a mixture of insight-directed and behavioural techniques similar to those used by Masters and Johnson (1970). Interviews were reported back to the group which gave advice and support. The doctors, all beginners in this type of work, were able to help substantially 72 per cent of 47 couples treated.
