Dr Paola Gargiulo Maffei, psychologist and CMT patience, writes a fashinating book on feminine sexuality and Charcot-Marie-Tooth. “Sexuality is a fundamental requirement for the well-being of any individual – the author says – it’s game, relationship, pleasure, intimacy, all together. However the full expression of sexuality could be undermined by the presence of a chronic condition such as CMT”.
This book is the result of a long term and intense study directed by AICMT, the Italian association for Charcot-Marie-Tooth. Unfortunately, the book has been published in Italian only. If you would like to push a translation to other languages, feel free to contact us and we will forward all your messages every week to Dr Gargiulo.
At the moment you can order the book from the Italian editor SBC. Their website is no cutting edge technology, however they will donate any revenue of the book to the CMT research. That’s very nice and very rare for an editor, and we really appreciate. Thanks SBC!
SBC website has no specific page for their book, only a general url. So the only way to order the book is to go to the home page and put the title “Sessualità nella CMT” in the search engine (see image below).
