This authoritative guidebook documents all the nonmedical approaches nurses will need when treating women with functional complaints, diseases, and disorders, including depression, breast cancer, menopause, pregnancy, and more. For each condition and disease, Clark outlines expected responses, cautions, assessments, tips for treatment, and additional references.

Lists available products and training programs for each disease or condition
Contains cutting-edge research on nonmedical therapies and advice for counseling women
Essential for all levels of nurses working with women, this book provides an invaluable wealth of information on complementary health and treatment for women.
