New book with chapter by Julie Jomeen

Psychosocial Resilience and Risk in the Perinatal Period: Implications and Guidance for Professionals

Edited by Gill Thomson, University of Central Lancashire,
UK and Virginia Schmied, University of Western Sydney,

Drawing on psychosocial perspectives, this book considers the underlying risk factors that create situations of vulnerability and marginalisation for mothers, from their baby‘s conception up to a year after birth. It identifies the protective factors - whether at an individual, family, community or service level – that can mitigate against adverse outcomes and it highlights promising evidence-based interventions. With its focus on social and cultural diversity as well as complex needs, this is an excellent overview for students and practitioners alike, featuring the latest research findings, illustrations of exemplary care, and emphasis on implications for practice.
