Abstract

This study investigates the reflections of 279 U.S. and Czech and Slovak mental health and health professionals about their use of sexually explicit materials. Professionals were 2.6 times as likely to cite specific instances when their use of sexually explicit materials was useful with their clients and students than they were to cite instances when such materials were not useful. In addition, no significant differences were observed between the ways in which U.S. and Czech and Slovak mental health and health professionals evaluated these materials. The article presents several suggestions for the judicious and efficacious use of sexually explicit materials in therapy or in the classroom in either Western or Central European settings.
