The field of sex therapy has transformed over the past several decades. Early sex therapy research conceptualized sexual problems and solutions as largely biomedical and later approaches considered psychological, relational and social factors. Sex therapy has traditionally been considered a behavioral field, based on providing permission to discuss sex, providing psychoeducation, and cognitive behavioral therapy. More contemporary approaches acknowledge that behavioral techniques have application and utility in the context of an integrated and systemic approach that appreciates individual as well as relational psychological, physical and social factors.
