Gender and Psychopathology 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 many competing and additive points of view by distinguished multidisciplinary contributors. This text includes comprehensive up-to-date DSM-IV categories of illness for the male-female differences in psychiatric disorders. Depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, eating disorders, somatoform disorders, sleep disorders, and addictions are among the topics explored. Those interested in specific issues can read particular chapters of interest because each chapter is complete in itself. This is the first book to explore gender differences in psychopathology. Gender and Psychopathology will be informative and useful to students, researchers, and mental health clinicians of all disciplines.
