Counseling Clients Who Have Difficulty Getting Pregnant Again
In Counseling Clients Who Have Difficulty Getting Pregnant Again, Susan H. McDaniel demonstrates her approach to working with clients experiencing secondary infertility, or difficulty conceiving or carrying a pregnancy to full term after previously having had a child. Approximately 1 in 5 couples in the United States have difficulty conceiving at some point, a biopsychosocial problem that often results in adjustment disorders, depression, and couple and family problems. Dr. McDaniel uses medical family therapy as the framework for therapy with this population.
In this DVD, Dr. McDaniel talks with a 40-year-old woman who has a daughter by an earlier marriage, but is now having difficulty conceiving with her new husband. Dr. McDaniel helps the client unravel some of the complex relationship issues related to her infertility and encourages her to talk to her husband about his expectations for developing their family together.
