"As a psychotherapist and educator of future mental health practitioners, I believe this work fills an important gap in reference books for professionals who care for childbearing women. Since the volume provides invaluable neurobiological research on depression and anxiety, I recommend this work to all health and mental health professionals."--Illness, Crisis and Loss Over the past three years, pregnancy related mood disorders have become the focus of health care advocates and legislators alike with subsequent reflection in nationwide media. Statistics on the prevalence of perinatal mood disorders suggest that up to 20% of women experience diagnosable pregnancy related mood disorders. The growing recognition of these common disorders, coupled with an increasing knowledge base about the dire consequences of untreated maternal depression, has propelled this issue to the fore of national public health priorities. This increasing awareness has also resulted in recent legislative and healthcare initiatives to screen, assess, and treat such disorders. On April 13, 2006, Governor Jon S. Corzine (D -NJ) signed a law requiring all new mothers to be educated and screened for postpartum depression. This law is the first of its kind in the country, but many states and federal advocates are proposing similar laws. The motivation for states and the federal government to adopt education and screening program is high and may soon be a federal mandate. But a major barrier to successful implementation of such programs is the lack of available resources to train healthcare professionals in this specialty. This book offers a major resource for healthcare professionals, mental health professionals, and medical, nursing, psychology, and social work students who will be confronting this problem in their practices. The contributions, by renowned experts, fill a glaring gap in the knowledge professionals need in order to successfully manage maternal mental health.

Women outnumber men as consumers of health care in the United States: they visit doctors more often, fill more prescriptions, undergo more surgeries, occupy more hospital beds, and spend more money on health care than men. Yet it wasn't until the past decade that active trials in gender-specific aspects of mental health began leading us to a better understanding of the psychiatric disorders to which women are vulnerable. Distilling the findings of this research into practical information about the assessment and management of psychiatric conditions specific to women, this Second Edition (updated from 1997) expands upon the biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors that influence women's mental health, with particular emphasis on reproductive points in the female life cycle-and the ways in which these factors are integral to gender-sensitive case formulations, diagnoses, and treatment planning. Updates in the second edition include the latest findings about premenstrual dysphoric disorder, the use of psychiatric medications in pregnant and breast-feeding women, perinatal loss, surgical menopause, eating disorders, sexual trauma, seasonal affective disorder, sleep disorders, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Complementing lengthier psychiatric references, this latest "Concise Guide" offers enduring value in a convenient pocket-size format with extensive tables and illustrations. Its wealth of practical information, highlighted by material from the authors' clinical experiences, makes it a must-read for psychiatrists, psychiatry residents, and medical students working in various treatment settings, from inpatient psychiatry units and outpatient clinics toconsultation-liaison services and private offices.
