"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

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.

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.
Leanne McNett, LCSW
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.
