Description:
It’s not a topic that comes up at play groups or over coffee. Instead, 1 in 7 new mothers prefer to suffer quietly, engulfed in shame and secrecy, afraid to dispel the ever-present myths about motherhood – “everything is perfect”, “I love being a mother”, and “this is the happiest time of my life”.

She doesn’t share the dark thoughts, intense anxiety, scary intrusive thoughts, checking excessively on the baby, feelings of inadequacy, grief over her former independence, thoughts of harming herself or the baby, and even delusions and hallucinations.

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADS), are real, pervasive, and life-threatening.

Are you missing the signs with the women you treat?

Attend this compelling one-day seminar and gain tools to intervene during a critical period that does not offer the luxury of time. Postpartum women are exceptionally vulnerable, as are their infants who are fully dependent on them. And given that suicide is the 2nd leading cause of maternal death, this seminar is a must-attend for any professional working with pregnant or postpartum women.

Objectives:
• Recognize how and why mood disorders in the perinatal period are unique, nuanced and high-risk.
• Differentiate between “normal” perinatal experiences and clinically relevant symptoms.
• Design effective, efficient, and appropriate interventions utilizing screening tools, interview questions, and The PPSC’s Voice of Depression Response Model.
• Explain ways the family system is impacted by PMADs and how to address intergenerational issues between grandmother, mother and child.
• Articulate why therapist vulnerability and urgent care need render supervision and collegial collaboration especially important in this field of work.
• Discuss impact of special circumstances (breastfeeding, NICU, perinatal loss, adoption, depression in the partner) on therapeutic process and treatment planning.
