A gay man's guide to prostate cancer.


A gay man's guide to prostate cancer.

Ed. by Gerald Perlman and Jack Drescher.

Haworth Pr.


183 pages




The status quo of the medical world is heterosexually assumptive. Perlman, a psychotherapist in private practice, and Drescher, a training and supervising analyst at the William Alanson White Institute, shift the perspective to gay men's needs and experiences when facing prostate cancer. The book is divided into a professional section covering medical and psychological aspects, and a section showcasing the voices of gay men from different walks of life as they face the disease. A glossary of medical terms is included. This work has been co-published simultaneously as Journal of Gay & Lesbian Psychotherapy, v.9, nos.1/2, 2005.
