    Samenvatting

    The purpose of this study was to determine whether participation in a short and well-structured psychosexual therapy was effective for people with a broad range of physical impairments and chronic diseases. Data were collected from 37 men and 10 women (between 30 and 70 years of age). The results demonstrated that psychosexual therapy has a positive effect on several areas of sexual well-being: less relational stress and sexual stress and an increase in sexual satisfaction, sexual esteem, sexual interaction competence, and a higher frequency in sexual contact. Although based on a relatively small sample, these findings clearly indicate that people with physical impairments can benefit from psychosexual therapy.
