* Somatic Maternal Healing presents a complete trauma treatment model for Maternal Mental Health, integrating psychodynamic and somatic clinical techniques within a systemic perspective that can be adapted widely to different settings.

* By integrating the missing piece of somatic psychology that is needed to become fully trauma-informed and dedicated to fighting health inequity, Somatic Maternal Healing brings Maternal Mental Health into the 21st century.

* The first comprehensive treatment approach for Maternal Mental Health with both psychodynamic and somatic clinical techniques and a systemic framework addressing psychological, societal, and biological levels of intervention.
"An important and hopeful contribution to understanding how clinicians can facilitate a woman's struggle to grow through the process of birthing and parenting. The psychological and corporeal challenges and possibilities make this required as well as illuminating reading."

Susie Orbach, PhD, author of Fat is a Feminist Issue and Bodies

"In this brilliantly conceived and passionate book, Vissing brings a long overdue integration of analytic relational thinking with somatic psychology to bear on women's perinatal difficulties, offering a trenchant analysis of the barriers to the recognition of maternal suffering along with an inspiring account of essential clinical strategies for treatment. Truly vital reading for anyone concerned with the psychological and biosocial world of mothers and infants."

Jessica Benjamin, PhD, author of The Bonds of Love and Beyond Doer and Done To

"Somatic Maternal Healing expertly presents a trauma-informed, research-based framework to better understand the transition to motherhood within the context of profound change, adaptation, and transformation. All therapists working in the field of maternal mental health should have access to these compelling and essential clinical interpretations and interventions."
