Infertility: Psychological Issues and Counseling Strategies is a valuable reference for mental health professionals who treat individuals and couples grappling with the psychological and emotional strains of infertility and its treatment. Drawing upon their professional experiences as well as the current literature in the field, leading practitioners consider the differences in how women and men react to a diagnosis of infertility and describe strategies for helping individuals deal with the anxieties, feelings of inadequacy, and low self-esteem that can follow such a diagnosis. These experts examine the effects of infertility on love, sex, and other facets of a relationship and detail methods for helping couples resolve conflicts about infertility. They explore the latest findings on pregnancy-related stress and its possible somatic effects, and they describe effective stress management techniques. They offer practical guidelines for helping patients to cope with failed fertility treatments and manage the grief of a miscarriage. And they examine a wide range of clinical issues surrounding alternative routes to parenting, including adoption.

It is essential for counselors and counseling professionals to understand the impact of their personal biases and how these biases can impact the counseling process, in addition to respecting and honoring the beliefs of their clients. Communication and the sharing of experiences between counsellors is an effective strategy for perfecting methods to identify and address these biases. Cases on Cross-Cultural Counseling Strategies is a comprehensive research book that explores creative healing approaches used by counselors working with diverse clients in a variety of geographical locations, developmental levels, and complex and varied identities. Each case study applies the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies (MSJCCs) to the counseling relationship and looks at unique aspects of the client’s identity, specific approaches taken by the counselor, and the outcomes of the counseling relationship. Featuring a broad range of topics such as higher education, international counseling, and gender bias in counseling, this book is ideal for counselors, therapists, psychologists, counselor educators, graduate students, practitioners, academicians, and researchers.

"This book is for practicing psychologists in the field of fertility counseling and those considering entering this relatively new and evolving field. The goal is for these professionals to have a resource to help them resolve ethical dilemmas they encounter in their work. Using this book as a knowledge base will assist psychologists who are working with individuals and couples using the various assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) and those needing to fulfill, according to American Society of Reproductive Medicine guidelines, the psychological component of their assessment prior to being admitted into ART protocols. Our goal in this book is to provide guidance to mental health professionals and help them to avoid inadvertently crossing ethical boundaries. This book is meant to be thought provoking. We have undertaken to frame the issues and set forth the factors that should be considered when confronting a novel ethical problem fraught with conflicting social and personal values. We provide a framework within which mental health professionals can attempt to balance the full range of perspectives and work toward a resolution of complex, ever-changing questions. The information contained in this book is concentrated on the relevant psychological, moral, ethical, and legal aspects of reproductive medicine as well as the various roles psychologists may play in fertility counseling"--Introduction.
