The ARC Fertility Program Contributes to Groundbreaking Book on Supporting People on Their Fertility Journeys

by | Dec 12, 2022 | Fertility Blog, Press Releases

In the world of fertility medicine, it is easy to overlook the importance of managing the psychological well-being of people who are going through the difficult journey of forming and growing their families. That’s why the two-volume book Fertility Counseling is so important – and why ARC Fertility is excited to contribute to the second edition of this powerful resource published by the prestigious Cambridge University Press. 

Edited by reproductive mental health specialist Sharon N. Covington, MSW, LCSW-C, the first chapter, Collaborative reproductive healthcare model: A Patient-Centered Approach to Medical and Psychosocial Care, is written by Ms. Covington in co-authorship with Dr. David Adamson, reproductive endocrinologist and founder and CEO of ARC Fertility. This is the second edition of the essential guide for reproductive professionals and is now available in a Clinical Guide and a Case Studies Guide, presenting the most current knowledge on counseling diverse patients amidst rapidly advancing modern technology. The book delivers an in-depth presentation of clinical concepts for a foundational understanding of the medical and psychosocial experience of fertility treatment. Areas explored include reproductive psychology, therapeutic approaches, assessment, and preparation in assisted reproduction, addressing the needs of diverse populations, and clinical practice issues. 

The book features new topics such as transgender ART, recurrent pregnancy loss, post-partum adjustment, and the pregnant therapist. In Case Studies, leading international practitioners share their stories of real-world experiences and their perspectives on applying clinical concepts to treatment practice. An essential aid for medical and mental health professionals, this comprehensive guide allows clinicians to develop and refine the skills required to address the increasingly complex psychosocial needs of fertility patients.
