Randomly selected AASECT members who reported that they conduct sex therapy (N = 289) responded to a questionnaire about their sex therapy caseloads. Desire discrepancies between partners was the most common problem (31%). Least commonly reported problems were vaginismus (5%), ejaculatory inhibition (5%), and primary erectile dysfunction (2%). Highest(More)
This study investigated the impact of group treatment on women with secondary orgasmic dysfunction and their partners. Eleven couples received 4 hours of basic sex education, after which seven of the couples received a Combination treatment format consisting of communication skills followed by sexual skills, while four of the couples received the opposite(More)
Sixty-six women reporting secondary orgasmic dysfunction and their partners, who received one of five group treatment formats, were sent questionnaires 2-6 years later. Thirty-eight of the women and 38 of the male partners responded to the follow-up questionnaires. Women who were not divorced and who did not receive additional treatment after group(More)
Functional verification is a major bottleneck in today's design flow. Expensive and time consuming, the process of verifying complex designs is actually under serious reconsideration. We propose a new verification framework based on SystemC verification standard that uses MATLAB and Simulink to accelerate testbench development. Our major contributions are(More)
This study investigated the differential effectiveness of various treatment formats for 55 couples in which the woman reported secondary orgasmic dysfunction (defined as the inability of the woman to reach orgasm during intercourse, with or without clitoral stimulation, more than 50% of the time for the last 5 months). Couples received two 2-hr sessions of(More)
The effects of three group treatment formats on 20 men with secondary erectile dysfunction and their partners were contrasted. After a comprehensive medical and psychological screening, each couple was assigned to one of three treatment groups (Communication Technique Training, Sexual Technique Training, Combination Treatment) or to one of two control(More)
This paper provides a comprehensive methodological review of the literature assessing the relationship between marital satisfaction and communication. The investigations vary greatly in the adequacy of their assessment measures and soundness of their research design. Although it is generally concluded that both content and process communication are related(More)
 We proposed in [1] an automatic functional constraint extractor that can be applied on the RT level. These functional constraints are used to generate pseudo functional test patterns with ATPG tools. The patterns are then used to improve the verification process. This technical report complements the work proposed in [1] as it contains the implementation(More)
This paper presents a fault tolerant flight control system. The Extended Multiple Model Adaptive Estimation EMMAE method is used to design the Fault Detection and Diagnosis FDD process. This process is able to detect, isolate and identify in real time faults that occurs in aircraft actuator. Based on information given by FDD process, a Sliding Mode(More)
Acknowledgements I would like to express my gratitude to my supervisor, Prof. Zeljko Zilic, for his guidance over the course of my studies at McGill University. Through his wisdom, he has guided me towards fruitful avenues of research. He has also provided me with insights and feedback that have proven to be invaluable; I am greatly appreciative of his(More)
