Overview

Each book in this series will provide a lively, concise and critical review of current research and theory in a specific area of reproductive psychology. Contributors develop appropriate biological, psychological and sociological aspects of their

subjects and show how the information can be applied in clinical practice. All books adopt an enquiring approach, asking what is the problem, how might it be explained, what is the evidence, how can this inform practice?

The lively and rigorous contributions to this book bring together a variety of current approaches to reproductive issues. Questioning common assumptions the authors draw on both theory and research, to argue that human reproduction is a complex

biological, social and psychological process. Whether or not people actually have babies, their potential for reproduction is an important part of their lives. Ideas about male-ness and female-ness and the expression of sexuality, and the fertility

control are all discussed. This text provides an invaluable resource for professionals working in the health care arena, particularly in gynaecology, midwifery, clinical or health psychology. Students will also find it accessible and relevant to their

diploma and degree level studies.
• Presents a wide range of stimulating material
• Brings together biological, social and psychological views
• Encourages active debate on topical and important issues This series of three books brings together

up-to-the-minute theory and wide ranging research on the psychology of human reproduction for the first time and places it in a biopsychosocial context. The books are aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students in psychology, nursing and midwifery,

but are alos essential reading for anyone with an interest in reproduction and human development. The other two titles in the series are:
• Conception, Pregnancy and Birth
• Current Issues on Infancy and Parenthood

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan Caruso Klock, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This edited book contains 11 chapters on topics related to reproductive potential and fertility control. Each chapter provides an up-to-date synthesis of research findings from a biopsychosocial model. The topics include gender identity, puberty, menstruation, menopause, routine gynecologic procedures, andrology, family planning, contraceptive use, elective abortion, sexual behavior and HIV, and female sexuality.
Purpose: The purpose is to inform the reader about the psychological, biological, and social factors that influence reproductive psychology. The authors move beyond the traditional medical model and hypothesis testing approaches to include qualitative research and feminist theoretical perspectives. The authors succeed in presenting the information in a well-integrated and easy-to-read style.
Audience: The authors state that the intended audience is psychology undergraduates and nursing and midwifery students. The book would also be an ideal reference source for health psychology graduate students and clinicians in obstetrics and gynecology and other women's healthcare settings. The contributors are all from the United Kingdom, but they have thoroughly reviewed the international literature.
Features: The chapters provide relevant illustrations that complement the text. In addition, there are complete reference lists as well as suggestions for further reading. Particularly helpful for clinicians is the application section at the end of each chapter. This section highlights the clinical application of the material presented in the chapter. There is only a subject index; no author index is provided.
Assessment: This is a useful, up-to-date, and often thought-provoking book providing a thorough discussion of topics in reproductive psychology.
