Psychosomatic Gynaecology and Obstetrics

WOMAN favours an integrative approach to gynaecology and obstetrics. Hence, it focuses on an all-embracing understanding of health and disease in women giving due regard to psychosomatic, relational, and socio-cultural issues.

The primary aim of WOMAN is to help raise awareness of clinicians and other healthcare professionals, for example, midwives, nurses, and psychologists, and promote the integration of psychosomatic research into clinical practice in order to avoid reductionist approaches concentrating on purely somatic issues. The challenges faced by women in the 21st century require an innovative approach to health and disease taking both a biographical and a social dimension into account. Adequate psychosomatic therapy means personalised medicine.

This multidisciplinary journal serves as a link between clinical application and psychosomatic research in gynaecology and obstetrics. It also addresses a wide array of other medical disciplines related to women`s health and diseases, ranging from neuroscience to internal medicine.

WOMAN endeavours to provide a forum where clinicians and researchers, therapists and sociologists and other healthcare professionals can exchange views. Furthermore, it shall make creative scientific approaches a subject of discussion, extending from reproductive medicine to geriatrics, from pregnancy related issues to oncology, from operative gynaecology to psychology, from sexual medicine to gynaecological endocrinology, from epidemiology to ethics.
