    ABSTRACT: Suggests that problems in treating the male rape victim include the reluctance of many men to report sexual assault, lack of facilities for helping men, and lack of knowledge about the phenomenon. Most male rape is by other men, and males often sustain more injuries than do females. Three phases in the rape trauma syndrome are discussed: acute, reorganization, and latent.

    ABSTRACT: Discusses the high amount of stress encountered by physicians, citing the high degree of responsibility, changes in the public view of doctors (i.e., challenges to their authority), lack of positive feedback, and busy schedules as important factors. It is noted that rates of suicide, substance abuse, and some illnesses are higher for physicians than for the general population. A list of early signs of stress and impairment is presented, and physicians are encouraged to look for such signs in themselves and colleagues. Suggestions for stress management include reappraisal of priorities, exercise, relaxation techniques, and stress therapy for groups or married couples.

    ABSTRACT: Contends that while the Parkinson's disease (PD) symptoms of premorbid personality and psychosis may impair a patient's sexual functioning, the symptoms of depression and dementia are the most serious impediments to the emotional and psychic well-being and frequently lead to sexual dysfunction. Treatment with dopamine agonists produces improvement in motor functions but may interfere with normal sexual behavior. This nonspecific drug effect and the inherent motor deficits of the disease further intensify sexual dysfunction. Common sexual complaints expressed by PD patients on medication include difficulty in attaining/maintaining an erection and delayed ejaculation.

    ABSTRACT: Examines sexual counseling for elderly patients after myocardial infarction (MI) by discussing patient reactions to the event, sexual feelings after, and psychological reactions that may affect sexuality. After MI, each patient needs a rehabilitative program that includes sexual counseling and is tailored to his/her physical and emotional needs. Assessment, education, and counseling procedures for the post-MI patient are described, and ways to make post-MI intercourse more comfortable (i.e, drugs, positions, environmental situations) are outlined.

    ABSTRACT: Discusses the most common basic areas of disagreement among conjugal couples, the underlying causes of the disagreements, and interactions among the causes. Apparent areas of disagreement include finances, sex, childbearing and childrearing, in-laws, and substance abuse. Each of these can be based on 1 or more of the following issue areas: power and control, nurturance, intimacy and privacy, trust, fidelity, and differences in style (lifestyle, sense of order, and cognitive style); these areas of marital interaction and potential disagreement often overlap. Each of the underlying bases is analyzed and illustrated via case examples. If differences escalate to the point of severe marital disagreements, both spouses need to learn that they have legitimate and understandable differences and similarities that have the potential for conflict, and they must move past mutual blaming into a process of mutual acceptance.

    ABSTRACT: Presents clues for identifying abuse/neglect and sexual abuse/rape in the elderly. Profiles of the abused and the abusers are outlined, and intervention strategies are proposed. Legal issues in reporting elder abuse are also examined. It is suggested that to intervene effectively, it is important to (1) know what can and cannot be accomplished, (2) focus on practical solutions to provide support for the caregiver's and abused older person's needs, (3) consult the elderly patient to determine his/her wishes, and (4) enlist support from other family members, community support groups, and friends.

    ABSTRACT: Discusses attitudes and behaviors relevant to prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), namely the use of condoms. Appropriate behaviors are outlined, and the importance of verbal communications between partners about these behaviors and the related interpersonal skills are discussed. Attitudes influencing the underutilization of prophylaxis are reviewed, and the following interventions for the removal of interpersonal obstacles to behavior change are addressed: (1) desensitization of patients; (2) provision of information; (3) endorsement of condom usage; (4) rehearsal of interpersonal scenarios; (5) provision of behavioral scripts; (6) suggestion of gradual adoption of behaviors; and (7) identification of alternatives to unprotected coitus. The behavioral challenge presented by the US STD epidemic calls for innovative, multidisciplinary clinical and research efforts and gives family physicians a major role in the area of primary prevention.

    ABSTRACT: Surveyed physicians (results were tabulated after 400 responses) to determine the prevalence of inhibited sexual desire (ISD) among sexual partners. Results reveal considerable disagreement among physicians as to the prevalence of ISD, but most agreed that couples who have frequent intercourse enjoy greater marital compatibility. It is concluded that effective treatment for ISD may therefore also benefit overall marital relationships. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)

    ABSTRACT: Describes the following 4 types of problems experienced by couples during adjustment to parenthood: (1) the physical burden of caring for an infant, (2) the strain on the husband–wife relationship, (3) emotional costs related to doubts over competence and responsibilities of parenthood, and (4) personal confinement. Couples that become familiar with and accept the many changes that accompany parenthood may avoid unnecessary marital stress. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)

    ABSTRACT: Contends that while the divorce rate for elderly couples is low, the impact of marital breakdown can be devastating. Illness, physical disabilities, stresses associated with aging, loneliness, and sexual changes and adjustment can result in physical and psychological complaints. It is suggested that primary care physicians are most likely to be consulted by elderly patients and that they should inquire about marital and sexual needs and recent losses and reassure and encourage patients about their needs and feelings. Counseling, drug therapy, or a referral for psychological help may be required. Four case studies are briefly presented. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)

    ABSTRACT: Discusses the problems of teenagers with sexual confusion concerning gender identity and sexual orientation. Indications for therapy are described and the case histories of a 19-yr-old girl and an 18-yr-old male with sexual confusion are reviewed.
