A Case of Penile Obsession and Compulsive Hypersexuality: Conceptual Frameworks and Responsible Eclecticism in Individual and Family Psychotherapy.
Ellis, Godfrey J.; Sandvold, Kenneth D.
Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v11 n2 p193-212 Apr 1989
A clinical case of penile obsession and compulsive hypersexuality is interpreted from four different theoretical frameworks--psychoanalysis, behaviorism, Bowen-type multigenerational therapy, and structural/strategic systems theory--to illustrate how conceptual frameworks implicitly or explicitly underlie all therapeutic approaches. Implications for eclecticism in clinical practice are discussed. (TE)
