As the rate of infertility continues to climb worldwide, so does the need for psychological counseling among infertile individuals and couples attempting to cope with the pressures that infertility can bring to a relationship. At the same time, a bold new generation of fertility restoration, in-vitro fertilization, and surrogate parenting technologies have opened a Pandora's box of knotty ethical, moral, and psychological issues. Without the helping hand of a mental health professional, conflicts over these highly charged issues can tear apart relationships and cause considerable emotional and psychological suffering. bl1

Infertility is an indispensable resource for family therapists and all mental health practitioners

"The field of infertility counseling has never been more exciting. The opportunity to work with physicians and patients is stimulating and meaningful. The opportunities for clinical research could not be greater....Hopefully, this book will provide clinicians with the latest theoretical, research, and practice considerations to guide them in these endeavors."—Sandra R. Leiblu
