He has been in practice for over 40 years and specialises in treating men, women and couples with sexual and relationship problems. He influenced the way we all sexologists think and manage sex therapy and still bring brilliant contribution to innovation in the clinical approach to sexual dysfunction. In addition to clinical practice, Professor Althof is an internationally recognised researcher and scientist. His research focused on the psychosocial aspects of sexual dysfunction and its impact on people’s quality of life is always mentioned in congresses or training courses; he is a highly sought-after lecturer and travels extensively to present his research findings. Francesca Tripodi and Evie Kirana have the privilege of conducting a friendly talk on the major scientific advances that occurred during his career, how he perceives them now, and how much expert opinion counts compared to evidence-based medicine. Professor Althof shares the clinical skills and professional decisions that played a central role in his achievements. He suggests tips on sexologists’ training, attitudes and abilities, and his perspective on what is sex therapy, overcoming the separation between theoretical psychological models.
