The integrative approach of the WPA model

Prof. Simonelli Chiara

Under the scientific guide of professors Juan Mezzich and Ruben Serrano a specific Educational Program on Sexual Health was established “keeping in mind the broadness of the field of sexuality”. Between the evidence-based research, the clinical wisdom and long experience in the field a new manual on “Psychiatry and sexual health” has been written by an international workgroup of 15 scientists and clinicians with the precious help of many other advisors. This modern approach is based on a contextualized and updated vision both for diagnosis and treatment of sexual dysfunctions, never forgetting the quality of life and all the other aspects concerning the single one or the couple.
