Abstract

Introduction: This study investigated the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral techniques in the treatment of men with erectile dysfunction / performance anxiety type.

Method: Five male patients and their wives participated in a single case experiment with multiplebaseline design for 9-11 sessions over a 2-3 month period. The subjects were selected using con- venience sampling. Following the establishment of baselines for the dependent variables, they entered the treatment program in order. Improvement index for each variable was considered to be a fall in the curve during treatment period. The instruments used in the study included clinical interview, Subjective Unit Distress (SUD) for assessing sexual anxiety, daily log sheet to record erection, Illogical Beliefs Inventory and Couple Motive Rating Scale.

Results: Cognitive-behavioral techniques were effective in decreasing sexual anxiety and mala- daptive beliefs, and increasing erection time.

Conclusion: Cognitive-behavioral techniques are effective in the treatment of erectile dysfunc- tion / performance anxiety type.
