Additional Book Details
Offering a unique combination of pragmatic and philosophical perspectives, Reframing Women′s Health presents an insightful exploration of the theoretical and practical advances in women′s health care. The assembled works of this distinguished group of contributors addresses issues as diverse as the concept of biological primacy, the role of reproduction, and the possible repercussions of accepting the male experience as normative. Other subjects discussed include the physical, emotional, and legal elements of abuse, advances and methodology in clinical and behavioral research, as well as a variety of practice concerns.
This comprehensive survey of critical women′s health topics will be indispensable to researchers, educators, clinicians, and students in this and such related fields as gender studies, health sciences, psychology, and social work.
"In Reframing Women′s Health, the editor has assembled some of the finest authors in the field to create a broad-based, multidisciplinary source of the latest thinking on women′s health. For a discipline this young, the book represents an extremely comprehensive collection of works. . . . The authors go beyond the stereotyped view of obstetric and gynecologic care and force the reader to consider women in relation to self and in relation to the world in which they live. . . . The tread that weaves through the book is one of challenging the old paradigm of women′s health care as care of reproductive issues alone. It is a must read for clinicians or teachers who wish to broaden their own thinking in a way that will promote optimal health care for women."
"Especially recommended for college-level students of women′s health and health science."
