Men and Sex
Chair: Rosine Perelberg
In honour of Robin Hyman
Is male sexuality a rampant uncontrollable urge that causes havoc in society? Are men at the mercy of their testosterone? With an unflinching gaze and bolstered by an assiduous body of research, psychiatrist Philip Graham leaves nothing unexposed as he lays bare dimension after dimension of male sexuality, from childhood to the grave.
Philip Graham, Professor Emeritus of Child Psychiatry at the Institute of Child Health, UCL, was a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist at the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street for over 25 years. He has also acted as co-ordinating consultant to the WHO Child Mental Health Programme, Chair of the National Children's Bureau and president of the European Society for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. His recent publications include The End of Adolescence and So Young, So Sad, So Listen.
