Description

The experience of being a woman in the modern world cannot be easily described using a series of psychological cliches and generic feminist language. This book contains contributions from scholars and clinical practitioners around the globe (USA, Canada, China, Italy, UK). Collectively, these chapters show that studying the psychology of women in the modern world mandates the appreciation of diversity. Topics include pregnancy, motherhood, lifestyle issues, healthcare, gender role conflicts, stress management, addiction recovery, and trauma resolution. Information on causality and development of phenomena; implications for clinical care; and offering improved services for women are discussed throughout. Although primarily a psychology volume, influences from many academic disciplines, including public health, sociology, medicine, and literature are woven into the chapters, highlighting the importance of integrated approaches in conceptualising the experiences of women in the modernity.
