Description

The book examines the major issues in perinatal clinical psychology with the presence of theoretical information and operational indications, through a biopsychosocial approach.

The multiplicity of scientific information reported makes this book both a comprehensive overview on the major perinatal mental health disorders and illnesses, and a clinical guide. It covers perinatal clinical psychology through a journey of 15 chapters, putting the arguments on a solid theoretical basis and reporting multiple operational indications of great utility for daily clinical practice. It has well documented new evidence bases in the field of clinical psychology that have underpinned the conspicuous current global and national developments in perinatal mental health.

As such it is an excellent resource for researchers, policy makers, practitioners, in fact, anyone and everyone who wishes to understand and rediscover - in a single opera - the current scientific and application scenario related to psychological health in pregnancy and after childbirth.

Reviews

Rosa Maria Quatraro and Pietro Grussu have brought together a collection of outstanding international researchers and clinicians who deeply enrich our understanding of the full range maternal perinatal psychological disorders – stress to PTSD, their effects on the developing fetus, infant, and family. The book also provides a theoretical and clinical guidance for dealing with them and alleviating suffering.

A bio-psycho-social approach in perinatal health care is essential. This book prepares professionals in the field with an excellent overview of the interdisciplinary aspects along with comprehensive practical advice.
