Editorial Reviews

Review

"Therapy and the Postpartum Woman is an essential resource for clinicians who work with postpartum women and the clients they serve. Postpartum mothers and those who love them will learn what questions to ask of caregivers and what educational and clinical experience to seek when choosing a therapist. By offering perinatal professionals and the women they serve an intimate view of the postpartum therapeutic experience, Kleiman's book creates a stellar benchmark for treatment quality and more efficacious outcomes." – Susan Stone, MSW, president, Postpartum Support, International and psychotherapist specializing in women's reproductive mental health

"A beacon of light and hope to women lost in the confusing world of postpartum depression, Therapy and the Postpartum Woman, is an invaluable tool for everyone engaged in the battle to help women cope with this devastating complication of childbirth. It is a resource that is destined to be at the right hand of any clinician whose mission is to ease the suffering of women with PPD and help them take those first steps on the road to recovery." – Liz Powell, director of the TLC (Talking Listening and Caring) for Moms perinatal depression program at Virtua Health in Southern New Jersey, USA

"[This book] provides tremendous breadth and depth of information, resources, theory, and interventions for treating this population. As a cognitive-behavioral therapist who works with women woth postpartum issues, I find her illustration of the types of distorted thoughts and beliefs of depressed mothers to be extensive and her focus on workable solutions right in line with my own experience with this population. Given the high incidence of depression and anxiety in postpartum women, and the potentially lethal consequences of these illnesses, this book is a must-read for any clinician working with mothers and mothers-to-be." - Antonia M. Pieracci, PhD., Senior Instructor, University of Colorado Depression Center

As a psychiatrist who specializes in working with pregnant and postpartum women, I found this book to be an invaluable resource. Karen Kleiman's expertise resounds brilliantly throughout this immensely useful book. It not only reflects well upon Karen's scholarly and academic pursuit of guiding how best to alleviate suffering for the postpartum woman but it also is written in a straightforward and thoughtful manner that parallels Karen's compassion and warmth for the affected new mother. I recommend this book highly to all clinicians working in this field.

Having had a friend suffer from post partum depression many years ago, I wish that Karen's book had been available for both her and me. It is wonderful to know that there are so many resources available for women who suffer from this syndrome, and Karen's book covers those resources for both the therapist and the patient so very thoroughly.

Karen Kleiman, MSW, continues to offer her insight and expertise to guide women and families struggling with perinatal mood disorders to the most effective help/resources. In Therapy and the Postpartum Woman, Kleiman answers important questions that often remain unasked when postpartum consumers seek therapeutic services - often for the first time. And for clinicians motivated to expand their specialty commitment to this population, the book is rich with clinical information and the most effective approaches to help clients feel heard and achieve recovery.

Kleiman's own commitment to postpartum women, which has endured over many years and resulted in the formation of the Postpartum Stress Center, has now brought us another excellent and timely publication. For as we begin to do a better job of identifying and assessing women suffering with pregnancy related mood disorders,treatment approaches must keep pace to maximize women's recovery options. The value of Kleimans book at this educational, legislative, awareness and prosocial juncture cannot be overestimated.

This book is a must have for any therapist or health care professional currently working with postpartum women or who plans to work with postpartum women in the future. Her writing is impeccable and she transcends the emotions that dance through the room during a therapy session.

Karen is an amazing professional and her dedication to the field can be seen throughout the book. For anyone seeking information for postpartum depression, this book provides a realistic view of the women who experience postpartum and the women who help them.

For those seeking support for postpartum depression, this book provides facts, information and resources, as well as demystifies the therapeutic process. I think women will appreciate her honesty and understand the importance of seeking appropriate support in order to feel better.

Thank you Karen for continuing to train professionals, educate women and share your wisdom.

As someone who provides therapy for women with postpartum mood disorders, this book has been invaluable. Therapy and the Postpartum Woman is actually very enjoyable and difficult to put down, which is unexpected for such an informative book.
My hope is that graduate clinical and medical programs regularly offer courses on Postpartum Mood Disorders, and that this book becomes part of the curriculum.
I would recommend this book to any clinician or medical professional who treats women, as well as to anyone who is personally affected by postpartum mood disorders.

This book goes the distance. Well researched, respectable, and clearly based on years of hands-on practice with this population. It reads like a thoroughly cited journal article, yet is enjoyable and holds attention. Not dry by any means. It is clear that the author cares deeply about women and families who experience postpartum difficulties. A book that is a worthy addition to any clinician's library regardless of specialty population or theoretical leanings.
