Premenstrual Syndrome: Psychiatric, Physiological, and Psychosocial Perspectives

Judith Siegel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Although social workers often work with client systems affected by premenstrual syndrome (PMS), little information has been made available to guide their work. This article reviews the literature on PMS and presents recent advances from psychiatric, physiological, and psychosocial perspectives. Clinical and policy issues also are examined in light of the recent inclusion of PMS in the appendix of the revised edition of the DSM-III.
