From Library Journal:

Taking a neuropsychiatric approach in this informative, nontechnical introduction to women's psychiatric disorders, Swedo and Leonard, both researchers at the National Institutes of Health, describe thoughts and feelings as resulting from biochemical events in the brain controlled by interactions of genetics, biology, and life experiences. They explain that just as medical illnesses often have emotional, psychological, and behavioral manifestations, so psychiatric disorders may have physical and psychological components. The effective diagnosis of psychiatric conditions should rule out vitamin deficiencies, hormonal and autoimmune disorders, toxic reactions to medications, and other medical causes of psychiatric syndromes. Case studies are used to illustrate diagnoses (with charts of symptoms and conditions that need to be considered) and treatments (usually combinations of psychotherapy, behavior therapy, and medications). Especially helpful are sections on choosing a therapist, when and where to seek mental healthcare, and what to expect from conventional treatments. Though extensive references are lacking, each chapter does conclude with a short reading list and the address of a national organization or support group. Recommended for public libraries and consumer health collections.

From Publishers Weekly:

In May, Harmony will publish Good Girls Don't Eat Dessert: Changing Your Relationship to Food and Sex, in which psychologists Rosalyn M. Meadow and Lillie Weiss note the startling parallels between the eating problems women face today and the sexual conflicts afflicting their foremothers in decades past. Throughout, their intent is to help women break the social cycle that links feelings of self-worth with the tyranny of deprivation, whatever its source. The book is a retitled reissue of Haworth Press's 1992 publication, Women's Conflicts About Eating and Sexuality. ($22 208p ISBN 0-517-70384-X) Dream work, self-help and group therapy mix in The Dreams of Women: Exploring and Interpreting Women's Dreams by British lecturer Lucy Goodison (Moving Heaven and Earth: Spirituality, Sexuality and Social Change). While drawing on the work of Jung, Freud and others, Goodison offers examples of dreams and their interpretations from women from many cultures to promote a variety of means by which women can mine their personal "gift of dreams" to enhance their well-being. Norton is publishing in April. ($23 354p ISBN 0-393-03917-X)
