Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Debra Klbecka, MS (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book offers a current review of the literature that includes research, diagnosis, and treatments of psychiatric disorders in women.
Purpose: According to the author, the purpose of the book is two-fold. First, to present the information so that a practitioner can make an informed decision on the diagnosis and management of women with a psychiatric illness. With this additional information the practitioner may be stimulated to further research in that area. The second is that through the research, improved treatment for women with a psychiatric diagnosis may be developed. These worthy objectives are met.
Audience: The book is written for medical school residents and practitioners who work with women. Psychiatry would not be the only specialty that would diagnose psychiatric disorders, since primary physicians and obstetrical/gynecologists treat a large percentage of those illnesses too.
Features: The book covers most psychiatric illnesses, which include affective disorders, dementia, schizophrenia, and anxiety disorders, to name a few. Each chapter includes the current review of the literature with factors that relate to that particular diagnosis. There are several chapters dedicated to women with schizophrenia including the use of antipsychotic medications and the effect that childbearing years and menopause have on the illness. Most of the chapters include tables or graphs. Tables that summarize the studies are most helpful.
Assessment: This book is useful in clinical practice. It reminds all practitioners about the importance that gender plays in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. Assessing where the woman is in her life cycle, from childbearing years through menopause, may affect the outcome of the treatment.
From The Critics
Twenty-five chapters provide an overview of the psychological and pharmacological treatment of psychiatric illnesses in women. Emphasizing advances in psycho-pharmacology and physiology, and considering the interaction between social and biological factors, this guide contains papers on anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, dementia, and other illnesses. It is intended to be useful for clinicians while remaining accessible for a general audience. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
