Addressing the growing interest in the psychology of women's health, characterised by the many psychology and health science courses which include a women's health component, Lorraine Sherr's Women, Health and the Mind deals with both theory and applied issues. Written by an international team of professionals and academics in the field of Women's Health, Gender Studies and Psychology, the concepts highlighted within the book are of universal interest.

Just some of the areas covered are * gender issues * consent * violence * women & mental health * grief and bereavement * stress and coping * depression * reproductive health * HIV * exercise * physical health * preventative health.

This book is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Health Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Public Health, Health Sciences and Gender Studies. Students on professional courses such as Nursing, Counselling, Health Care, Social Work and Social Service professionals would also benefit greatly from this comprehensive text.
