Sinopsis: To ensure comprehensive psychiatric care for women, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals must incorporate the latest advances in medicine, oncology, obstetrics and gynaecology into their practice. This is a practical handbook to the assessment and management of psychiatric conditions in women. It 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. This text should supply clinicians with important information on gender-related differences in psychiatric disorders and psychopharmaology 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, figures and charts containing the latest information on women's mental health, including the use of psychotropic medications with specific female populations.
