This collection of papers, written by doctors, psychiatrists, educators, lawyers, social workers, sociologists, and natural scientists, represents the first Canadian book devoted to the study of sexual behaviour.
The papers provide a general view of sexual attitudes, sexual identity, and current sex research in Canada as well as perspectives on the subject from a variety of disciplines.
As a companion to Family Planning in Canada: A Source Book, this volume is an important resource for teachers and students in medicine, nursing social work, family life studies, sociology, psychology, and psychiatry. It will also be useful to those who conduct in-service courses for the helping professions, and to any teachers or schools planning to introduce the topic.
An extensive section on resources includes a glossary, a basic library on sexuality, a list of Canadian references, a bibliography, an index to films, and a list of organizations in Canada and the United States active in the area.
