The second edition of the essential guide for reproductive professionals is now available in a Clinical Guide and a Case Studies Guide, presenting the most current knowledge on counseling diverse patients amidst rapidly advancing modern technology. Follow an in-depth presentation of clinical concepts in this Clinical Guide for a foundational understanding of the medical and psychosocial experience of fertility treatment. Explore the areas of reproductive psychology, therapeutic approaches, assessment and preparation in assisted reproduction, addressing the needs of diverse populations, and clinical practice issues. Featuring new topics such as transgender ART, recurrent pregnancy loss, post-partum adjustment, and the pregnant therapist. Then in Case Studies, discover the accessible, real-world experiences and perspectives as leading international practitioners share their stories applying clinical concepts to treatment practice. An essential aid for medical and mental health professionals, this comprehensive guide allows clinicians to develop and refine the skills required to address the increasingly complex psychosocial needs of fertility patients.

• Featuring 17 new chapters covering emerging topics such as technological advances, the increasing diversity of patients and the growing complexity of their needs, as well as issues less commonly discussed in clinical literature like the male experience, reproductive trauma and resiliency, racial and cultural sensitivity, and treatment issues when the clinician is pregnant
• Includes access to downloadable clinical tools and resources from internationally recognized experts, to provide a strong foundation for practical application of counseling approaches
