Overview

Written by leading authorities in psychiatry, this volume addresses a wide range of clinically relevant issues in the psychiatric evaluation and treatment of women. Coverage includes conditions unique to women—such as premenstrual dysphoric disorder, postpartum depression, and perimenopause-related depression—and gender differences in the clinical presentation and treatment response of mood, anxiety, psychotic, and substance use disorders.

Included is a discussion of behavioral inhibition in girls and how this can increase women's vulnerability to anxiety disorders. Other chapters focus on eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder, borderline personality disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in girls, and depression and anxiety associated with in vitro fertilization.
