Using real-world cases, this clinical guide details the psychosocial challenges faced by patients navigating the world of medically assisted reproduction (MAR). It describes in depth the latest perspectives on counseling approaches to the evolving complexities of family creation, whether fertility issues are a presenting problem or occur during the course of therapy or the aftermath of a struggle with infertility. Applying an evidence-based, cross-border approach, international experts not only discuss advanced perspectives on topics such as third party reproduction, pregnancy loss and adoption, but also newer issues of fertility preservation, 'older' patient parenthood, LGBT and singles' family creation. A comprehensive resource, it explores pioneering insights into fertility counseling such as spirituality, developing disclosure language, a counselor's personal fertility issues, and more. This is an essential aid for medical and mental health professionals to develop and refine the skills needed to treat the increasingly diverse and complex needs of MAR patients.

Psychotherapeuten sind in ihrer Arbeit immer wieder mit Fragen und Problemen der Frauengesundheit konfrontiert: Zentrale Lebensthemen wie Kinderwunsch, Mutterschaft oder das Älterwerden sind häufig auch Fokus in der Psychotherapie. Zudem kann sich die Symptomatik von psychischen Störungen auch zyklusabhängig manifestieren und sich im Zusammenhang mit Phasen der hormonellen Umstellung, z.B. in der Schwangerschaft, nach der Geburt, in den Wechseljahren, verschieden entwickeln. Der Band schlägt eine Brücke zwischen Psychologie und Gynäkologie. Er informiert über das diagnostische und therapeutische Vorgehen bei verschiedenen psychischen Störungen im Bereich der Frauenheilkunde. Der Band stellt das aktuelle Wissen zur Symptomatik, Ätiologie, Diagnostik und psychotherapeutischen Behandlung von Patientinnen mit einem prämenstruellen Syndrom, mit Fruchtbarkeitsstörungen, Schwangerschaftskomplikationen und dem klimakterischen Syndrom dar. Es werden wichtige Basisinformationen zur medizinischen Behandlung der beschriebenen Störungsbilder vermittelt, z. B. zur gynäkologischen Anamnese, zur assistierten Reproduktion und zum frauenärztlichen Vorgehen bei Schwangerschaftskomplikationen und in der Menopause. Vertieft wird anschließend das psychotherapeutische Vorgehen für den jeweiligen Problembereich aufgezeigt. Die psychotherapeutischen Behandlungsmethoden und die einzelnen Techniken werden konkret dargestellt, damit diese effizient im Praxisalltag umgesetzt werden können.
