The Plissit model

The PLISSIT model, developed by Annon (1974) 4 as an aid in therapy for sexual problems, is a very useful model for problems presented as feelings where there is limited scope for intervention by the therapist.

The mnemonic PLISSIT stands for the following:

• P is for permission giving.

• LI is for limited information.

• SS is for specific suggestion.

• IT is for intensive therapy.

Annon emphasises that every primary care practitioner should be competent to offer 'permission giving' and 'limited information'.
