-Publisher

Nowadays mental disorder is often seen as a typically female malady. This book rejects this claim, focusing on the complex patterning of mental disorder identified in men and women. The first part of the book - on fundamentals - examines the gendered landscape of mental disorder, key concepts and approaches, and the way in which gender is embedded in constructs of mental disorder. The second part, on the origins of mental disorder, considers theories of the causes of mental disorder and the extent to which the different causes can account for the gendered landscape of disorder. It concludes with a discussion of the policy implications of the analysis.
