Perinatal Mental Health: Meeting the Needs of Clients in the Childbearing Year
The childbearing year is a time of enormous physical, emotional, and cultural transition. Many new parents report feeling overwhelmed, isolated, depressed, and anxious. Some develop mood and anxiety disorders or are triggered into memories of past trauma during this time of change. This course provides an overview of how, as clinicians, we can provide specialized support to parents during the emotional transitions of the childbearing year: from pregnancy, through birth and into the postpartum period. We will cover psychiatric issues that manifest uniquely in the childbearing year, including perinatal loss, birth trauma, postpartum psychosis, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression.
This workshop involves lecture, discussion, and case discussions.
Registration is limited to 20 participants to facilitate a productive learning environment.
This workshop meets CEU requirements for mental health professionals in Maine and Category 1 continuing education hours through NH NASW. Certificates for 5.5 contact hours will be provided at the end of the day.
