The interplay between mind and body is a rapidly developing area of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, growing in prominence as many areas of medicine recognise the importance of understanding the physical, mental, and social aspects of numerous health conditions. Clinical Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology: A Patient-Centred Biopsychosocial Practice is a fundamental work that enhances the understanding of the management of womenâs disease conditions resulting from psychosomatic or mind-body interactions that are routinely encountered by clinicians.
Authored by a world-renowned group of contributors who have led a transformativeapproach to the way health services for women are approached, Clinical Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology comprehensively addresses the biological, psychological, social and cultural factors leading to disease manifestations. Including methods for prevention, detection and treatment, the text is supported by thirty clinical vignettes taken from real-life situations to support learning, and guide clinical practice.
Detailed chapters expound the scientific basis of the clinical psychosomatic concept, prevention of morbidity and mortality from cancer or obesity, pregnancy and childbirth, maternal dysphoria and child neurodevelopment, pain perception, infertility, premenstrual disorders, psycho-oncology, malignancy and sexual health, illnesses in migrants and refugees, alongside, pertinent cultural issues. This title is a highly topical and much-needed guide to addressing clinical conditions that compromise women’s health, including that of teenagers, as well as their mental and social well-being.
“[Clinical Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynaecology] tackles the previously buried subject of the interplay between a woman’s psychological state, her social situation, and her gynaecological functioning in health and in disease. It opens the reader’s eyes to the private anguish of so many women, which until now has gone largely unrecognised.” — From the foreword by Baroness Finlay of Llandaff
