Description - Oxford Textbook of Women and Mental Health by Dora Kohen

Gender and mental health is a growing field in psychiatry and in the last three to four decades, many different aspects of women's mental health have bloomed. Researchers have gained a better understanding of the psychological, social, and cultural aspects of mental health problems in women, and it is possible to describe, classify, and circumscribe different diagnoses as they appear in the female gender. Epidemiological data has also shown an increased frequency in different clinical aspects of many psychiatric disorders. In addition, research into areas including eating disorders, perinatal, psychiatric disorders, and the long term effects of abuse have helped us to appreciate the societal, parental, and personal consequences of mental health problems. The Oxford Textbook of Women and Mental Health is dedicated to fundamental aspects in women's mental health. Part one of the text covers topics from women's health as a global issue to different medical psychological theories, giving an overview of the role of gender in mental health. The second part of the book examines clinical aspects of women and mental health. In part three, special clinical topics such as PTSD, self-harm, menopause, violence and its management are investigated. Part four of the text focuses on parental psychiatric disorders, clarifying how mental health and behavioural problems in children can be a marker or consequence of maternal distress. The final two parts look at the topics of women and disability, and legislation and policy. A book of exceptional scope and depth, it will be essential for all those health professionals involved in managing mental health problems in women.
