Psychosomatic Aspects of Gynecological Disorders: Seven Psychoanalytic Case Studies
Harvard University Press, 1969 - Medical - 118 pages
This book is a preliminary effort in a largely uninvestigated area: the influence of emotional stress on functional disorder in gynecological cases. It summarizes detailed longitudinal studies during a minimum three-year period relating weekly measures of adrenal activity and psychological treatment in women seeking help for their menstrual and sexual difficulties. The findings will interest endocrinologists, psychoanalysts, gynecologists, psychologists, and psychophysiologists.
