"The title says it all – comprehensive. This book really touches on all the unique aspects of working with female sex and love addicts. Finally, a resource is written specifically to treat this underserved population!” Stefanie Carnes, Ph.D.
"Bravo to these authors. Of all the addictions, sex and love addictions have been the least understood the last treated. And when the lens has landed, it has focused on men, not women. But many women suffer too; and their varieties of sex and love addiction can produce horrifying and highly complex problems for them, their families and all who love them. Making Advances will make the female journey to recovery far less confusing and terrifying. It's a "must read" for therapists, their clients, and all the rest of us who probably know a woman who needs real help. This book is smart, up to date, way overdue, and a good read. I predict Making Advances will become a classic."
. Helen Fisher, Ph.D., Biological Anthropologist, Rutgers University, author of Why We Love
"At last, a comprehensive book for professionals that gives an in-depth understanding of women and the addictive use of sex. By including up to date knowledge of attachment, neurobiology, and the effects of early trauma, the authors provide a context for understanding addiction and the complex process of healing. A crucial book for all psychologists, counselors and clergy."
