4 HOURS OF SOCIAL WORK CONTINUING EDUCATION
Using a psycho social lens, we will explore pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. The class will focus on the perinatal period as a life-cycle transition, looking at the normal changes, needs, and barriers as they relate to creating resilient mental health. We will discuss strategies and therapeutic interventions that can help women through this challenging and life-changing period of life as well as examine our own belief systems around the perinatal period, enabling us to better serve our clients.
In the Childbearing Years Series, future classes will focus on perinatal diagnoses - diagnosing and treatment; issues related to fertility, loss, and healing; birth stories and birth trauma; as well as further therapeutic strategies for working with women during the perinatal period. This workshop is the first in a series of continuing education workshop addressing mental health perinatal and childbearing issues.
Through this workshop you will:
- Gain thorough knowledge of normal changes and barriers to resilient mental health during the perinatal period.
- Understand and apply therapeutic techniques that support women experience during the perinatal period.
- Identify your own introjects (unexamined values or beliefs) about the perinatal period as a basis for more effective treatment.
