Complementary and alternative therapies have become increasingly popular in the West, but to date no book has served as a practical, how-to guide for administering complementary therapies specifically for women.

This authoritative guidebook documents all the nonmedical approaches nurses will need when treating women with functional complaints, diseases, and disorders, including depression, breast cancer, menopause, pregnancy, and more. For each condition and disease, Clark outlines expected responses, cautions, assessments, tips for treatment, and additional references.
