Scientific truth and perceived truth about sexual human nature: Implications for therapists

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (4):595-596 (2000)
Therapists and their patients must deal with the negative sequelae of short term mating strategies. Implications for therapy of Gangestad & Simpson's strategic pluralism theory are compared with those of Buss's sexual strategies theory and Eagly's social role theory. Naive theories held by therapists and patients, as well as prevailing societal views, are posited as influential in determining the course and outcome of therapy.
