Complete Guide to Mental Health for Women by Lauren Slater
Book DescriptionThis complete guide provides a comprehensive overview of the psychological issues that concern women most. Arguing that women need to understand their mental health as more than a question of disorder or normality, it begins with the life cycle, helping women understand the major issues and biological changes associated with young adulthood, middle age, and old age. It also addresses the psychological importance of women's sexuality, relationships, motherhood and childlessness, trauma, and illness, and discusses how social contexts, such as poverty and racism, affect mental health.
