The Routledge International Handbook of Perinatal Mental Health Disorders comprehensively presents the leading, global research in understanding and clinically treating perinatal mental health disorders.

In this wide-ranging book, Wenzel invites a global community of scholars and practitioners working in perinatal mental health to discuss contemporary empirical research in the field and how this can be applied in practice. Presented in five parts, the book begins by laying out the historical context of the field before exploring prenatal and postpartum mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug misuse, eating disorders, and insomnia. Chapters then explore different interventions, such as mindfulness, integrative interpersonal psychotherapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy, before addressing specific special issues, such as fathers’ experiences, 2SLGBTQ+ individuals, and perinatal mental health disorders in migrant women. Designed to have international relevance, each chapter includes case studies and sections on cultural considerations, and clinical dialogue is used throughout to illustrate specific applications of contemporary empirical research to clinical practice.

This handbook is essential reading for clinicians who have an interest in issues associated with perinatal mental health disorders, as well as students of clinical social work, clinical psychiatry, clinical psychology, obstetrics and gynaecology, nursing, and midwifery.
