Susan G. Kornstein, Anita H. Clayton
Guilford Publications, Apr 12, 2002 - Psychology - 638 pages
This comprehensive reference and text synthesizes a vast body of current knowledge about women's mental health and health care. Coverage includes women's psychobiology across the life span--sex differences in neurobiology and psychopharmacology and psychiatric aspects of the reproductive cycle--as well as gender-related issues in assessment and treatment of frequently encountered psychiatric disorders. Empirically sound, clinically useful information is presented on sex differences in epidemiology, risk factors, presenting symptoms, treatment options and outcomes, and more. Sections also delve into mental health consultation to other medical specialties; developmental and sociocultural considerations in service delivery, including diversity issues; and research methodology and health policy concerns. Reflecting important contemporary advances in research and practice, this unique volume fills a crucial need for mental health and medical practitioners in a range of specialty areas. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level courses and residency programs.
