The Oxford Handbook of Perinatal Psychology is the most comprehensive resource to date for scholars, students, and clinicians on the emotional and psychological experiences associated with childbirth. The volume describes the typical biological, emotional, and psychosocial changes associated with childbearing as well as various domains of pathology. Chapters on normal psychosocial and biological changes associated with childbearing provide a sound knowledge base from which to interpret research on specific aspects of emotional and psychological maladjustment during this time. Chapters on special issues orient readers to the vast array of contextual factors that affect new parents' experiences during the transition to parenthood. The Handbook covers a broader base of research relevant to perinatal psychology than any other published work to date, focusing not only on parental wellbeing, but also on fetal and infant wellbeing. Readers will gain an understanding of what happens during the perinatal period, why it happens, and options for intervention when expected events go awry.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Amy Wenzel has assembled many of the most prominent experts and researchers in the field of perinatal psychology for this impressive and timely Handbook. This volume brings together emerging research from all disciplines, producing an indispensable resource and perfect companion for graduate students, clinicians, healthcare practitioners, and instructors working in this highly specialized field. It is an absolute must-have, premier guide for anyone dedicated to the perinatal population!" --Karen Kleiman, MSW, Founder, The Postpartum Stress Center, and Author, Therapy and the Postpartum Woman


"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
