"The contributors bring together an interdisciplinary approach to the state of the science in the field of perinatal psychology. This Handbook takes the reader on a trajectory of normal expectations and variations, clinical assessments, identification of specific issues and problems, treatment methods, and future research concepts. As Dr. Wenzel states in her introduction, for the village of providers who help care for and guide women and their families through the reproductive life cycle and transition to parenthood, this volume represents the 'village's library.' A must for providers in this specialty area." --Jeanne Watson Driscoll, PhD, PMHCNS-BC, President of JWD Associates, Inc., Boston, MA, and co-author of Women's Moods, Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders: a Clinician's Guide and Traumatic Childbirth
"This is a work of excellence, in the best tradition of the other high-quality handbooks in the
Oxford Library of Psychology, edited by the indefatigable Peter E. Nathan. It is an essential
resource. Clinicians are sure to have pregnant clients, now or in the future, and for practitioners who like to have the facts, the acquisition of this book will make a superb contribution and is highly recommended. Researchers and graduate students will especially welcome such a scholarly handbook and the erudition of its prolific editor, Amy Wenzel." --PsycCRITIQUES
