S01E07 Sexual Disorders 00/00/0000 A man exhibits himself in public. A woman feels guilty about not desiring sex. An otherwise happy couple finds themselves at odds over sex. These people share their private problems and demonstrate how the assessment and treatment of sexual disorders has advanced in the past 25 years.
S01E08 Mood Disorders 00/00/0000 Depression is one of the most common psychological problems.
