The majority of women who have had abortions report feeling happy, satisfied, and relieved following their abortion. Some few women who have had an abortion may experience some feelings of guilt and sadness; however, this rarely lasts longer than a few days. Those very few women who present with prolonged feelings of sadness and mental health problems are women who have either had these problems prior to their abortion, had other risk factors, or were influenced by frightening demonstrations and inaccurate biased information provided prior to the abortion. Through this book the authors hope to train general therapists and counselors in pre- and post-abortion counseling techniques--to avoid women experiencing unnecessary psychological problems created by those who insist that the non-existent "post-abortion syndrome" exists. "Abortion counseling has a critical role to play in ensuring women's mental health is the priority and not the goals of a political agenda. Thus, Needle and Walker have taken on a complex, profound and essential task -- equipping therapists and abortion counselors with the knowledge and skills needed to help their clients -- and they have done it wellÖ.Readers of this book should [gain] an increased understanding of how women's diverse life circumstances affect their ability to cope with the difficult decisions and circumstances surrounding abortion. They will also be better able to build women's resilience and coping skills by having considered them both in the context of women's lives (e.g., coping resources, social support, partner violence, incidence of depression), and in the context of socio-political agendas that seek to manipulate women's mental health in order to undermine women's reproductive rights....In the final analysis, it is important to remember that abortion counseling is not about abortion - it is about women confronting the decision to bear a child - with all of the profound and life changing commitments and responsibilities that entails." -- From the Foreword by Nancy Felipe Russo, PhD, Regents Professor of Psychology, Arizona State University

Pre abortion Counseling to Mitigate Negative Mental Health Outcomes

Counselors working in abortion care settings face social and political obstacles. While access to abortion currently faces political challenges, it has a complicated history in the United States of both an illegalization and legalization movement. This, among other social factors, makes abortion counseling complicated and challenging. Understanding the relationship between abortion and mental health is an important aspect of this work. While research does vary, it appears that negative mental health outcomes, such as psychiatric hospital admissions, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse (APA Task Force for Mental Health and Abortion, 2008), can be a reality some women following abortion. The necessity of competent, well-trained counselors, then, is vital for these women. However, limited resources may make this difficult. This dissertation began with the development and dissemination of a nationwide survey, which identified the need for resources for identifying and managing risks for negative mental health outcomes. This was combined with a review of the literature and experience within this setting to create a comprehensive resource guide. Finally, a structured focus group was conducted, which overall identified the resource as a useful resource for abortion counseling work.

In this updated and revised third edition of his classic text, Dr. Worden presents his current thinking on bereavement drawn from extensive research, clinical work, and the best of the new literature. Readers will find new information on special types of losses -- including children's violent deaths, grief and the elderly, and anticipatory grief -- as well as refinements to his basic model for mourning. It now not only includes the four "tasks of mourning" but also seven "mediators of mourning." In addition, a series of vignettes, the best of the first and second editions plus several new to this edition, bring bereavement issues to life.
