“Mental health professionals should have a comprehensive knowledge of both the physical and the psychiatric aspects of menopause in order to provide the best patient care. Written by international authorities in psychiatry, psychology, nursing, sociology and internal medicine, this book is a multidisciplinary resource for the care and treatment of menopausal and postmenopausal women. It explores menopause from a number of different perspectives and familiarizes clinicians with the medical issues associated with menopause, including physiology, symptomatology, risk factors, the medical evaluation, and hormone replacement therapy and other medical treatments. It then covers psychiatric aspects of menopause, psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacologic treatments, and multicultural and quality of life issues. Case examples illuminate common problems and their resolutions.”
