About this book


This book updates current knowledge in the field and discusses psychiatric disorders among women, in a manner that is relevant to clinical practice and while keeping cultural and social realities in perspective. The book is particularly important in the face of rapidly changing conditions globally (including better education and more working women) and challenges such as migration, war and violence, newer reproductive technologies and their impact on the mental health of women. As women's mental health and psychiatric disorders cannot be divorced from social and cultural realities, the book gives due importance to the current advances in neurobiology and psychopharmacology of psychiatric disorders among women. Chapters in the book are written by authors who use the life stage approach, collaborating with other researchers from different parts of the world to ensure cultural relevance and diverse viewpoints.
