Overview

To ensure comprehensive psychiatric care for women, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals must incorporate the latest advances in medicine, oncology, obstetrics, and gynecology into their practice. The Concise Guide to Women's Mental Health is a helpful, practical handbook on the assessment and management of psychiatric conditions in women. This guide explores medical treatments and their relationship to psychiatric illness. In particular, it examines the biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors that influence a woman's mental health and often contribute to psychiatric disorders. The book supplies clinicians with important information on gender-related differences in psychiatric disorders and psychopharmacology and the effects of these differences on differential diagnosis, case formulation, and treatment planning. For handy reference in clinical situations, the guide also provides numerous concise summary tables and figures containing the latest information on women's mental health, including the use of psychotropic medications with specific female populations.

...this book should be of interest to psychologically aware trainees in several disciplines, not just psychiatry (British Journal of Psychiatry).

Through easy-to-access, clearly written text and tables, this book provides clinicians with a 'need to know' update on the assessment and management of women's emotional and psychiatric problems at all stages of life...Every professional who deals with female patients...will find immediately practical information, clinical pearls, and wise sympathetic perspectives in this extremely valuable book (Joel Yager, M.D., Professor and Vice Chair for Education, The University of New Mexico, School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, Albuquerque, New Mexico).

The Concise Guide to Women's Mental Health compresses a wealth of clinically useful material about the reproductive aspects of women's mental health into a handy accessible resource (Nada L. Stotland, M.D., Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Substance Abuse Services, Illinois Masonic Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois).

Victoria Hendrick, M.D., is Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, University of California-Los Angeles; and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at West Los Angeles Veterans Administration Medical Center, Mental Health Clinic, Los Angeles, California.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
