Description - Understanding Women in Distress by Pamela Ashurst

Women are usually more in touch with their emotions than men and more readily seek help from professional sources when they encounter stress. The response they meet from doctors and other helping professionals at this point can be vital in determining the best outcome for them. Drs Ashurst and Hall have written this book as a contribution towards a better understanding of the psychological aspects of women's health problems. First of all, the authors give an account of how distress is caused, how it is translated into symptoms, and how it can be relieved by psychotherapy. Then, in Part One, they consider the biological, familial, and psychological factors promoting the development of a woman's identity throughout the various stages of her life. Part Two looks at deviations from and failures of this normal development and the life traumas which threaten feminine identity. The chapters are ordered so that they reflect the sequence of events in a woman's life cycle. The book is illustrated throughout with clinical examples and is written in language which makes it accessible to a lay as well as a professional audience.
