Course Description

4.5 HOURS OF SOCIAL WORK CONTINUING EDUCATION

This training will focus on understanding and working with both fetal loss and issues related to fertility. When someone becomes pregnant, there is often a sense of hopefulness and looking forward to the future. But when pregnancy loss occurs or it is difficult or impossible to get pregnant, loss becomes a significant part of the experience. This training will help participants understand the experience of loss before, during and after pregnancy as well as explore treatment that promotes healing. The the impact of race, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status will be woven into the training to help providers bring greater depth to the treatment they provide.
