Description - Psychiatric Aspects of Abortion by Nada Logan Stotland
Once a common-law right of women during the American Revolution, abortion now exists in the USA in a whirl of controversy. This edited volume seeks to serve as a guide for psychiatrists and counsellors who must grapple with the effects of judicial, legislative and cultural change on the psychiatric health of their patients. The contributors summarize research studies on the psychiatric effects of abortion, including long-term psychiatric impact, and the psychological consequences of denied abortion, illegal abortion and unwanted pregnancy. A review of psychotherapeutic issues focuses on the importance of risk-benefit data in helping women make decisions about abortion and the cultural and ethical considerations that affect both the practitioner and those contemplatinf abortion.
