Description - Gender and Psychopathology by M. V. Seeman

This work explores the gender differences in psychiatric syndromes in terms of symptoms, courses of illness, epidemiology and treatment responses. The book addresses the reasons for the differences from a variety of competing and additive points of view by a number of multidisciplinary contributors. The text contains up-to-date DSM-IV categories of illness for the male-female differences in psychiatric disorders. Depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, eating disorders, somatoform disorders and addictions are among the topics explored. Readers interested in specific issues can read particular chapters of interest because each chapter is complete in itself. The book also explores modern gender differences in psychopathology. The book is intended to be informative and useful to students, researchers and mental health clinicians of all disciplines.
