About the Authors
  • Mood and anxiety disorders in women represent an increasingly important area of research and treatment development. The authors take a broad biopsychosocial and developmental approach to the issues, beginning with anxiety disorders in adolescence and progressing through the life phases of women to menopause and old age. All the disorders are covered, from anxiety and borderline personality disorder to stress and late-life depression. Particular attention is paid to questions of vulnerability; epidemiological and clinical evidence showing gender differences in such disorders; aetiological explanations in terms of biological (including hormonal) as well as psychosocial parameters, and treatment implications.

    • Maps the gender differences in mood and anxiety disorders across the different developmental phases in a woman's life
    • Spans clinical practice and current research
    • Takes a broad biopsychosocial approach

    "In short, the work takes a progressive and comprehensive approach to women's mental health issues that can be used effectively by clinicians, mental health care administrators, researchers, academics, students, and policymakers. Taken collectively, its chapters can be a real eye-opener, promoting cultural and gender competency in the mental health care community."
    Edward J. Cumella and Jennifer Lafferty, Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books
