Understanding Women in Distress

Cover
Psychology Press, 1989 - 237 Seiten
Women are usually more in touch with their emotions than men and more readily seek help from professional sources when they encounter stress. The response they meet from doctors and other helping professionals at this point can be vital in determining the best outcome for them. Ashurst and Hall have written this book as a contribution towards a better understanding of the psychological aspects of women's health problems.
