The Most Frequent Complication of Childbirth: Understanding and Treating Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders

 
​Preferred registration deadline: January 26th

Diane Sanford, PhD
Owner & Health Provider, Midwest Mind Body Health Center

Because of the hormonal, psychological and situational changes of having a baby, 1 in 7 women will experience a postpartum mood or anxiety episode. The rates are higher, up to 1 in 4 women, among those in “at risk” groups.

This workshop will increase your understanding of the etiology underlying postpartum clinical conditions and how to distinguish them from normal postpartum adjustment changes. Understand the risk factors associated with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMAD's) and early intervention strategies to decrease your client’s vulnerability to a clinical episode.

We will explore evidence-based treatment approaches to PMAD's including mindfulness-based interventions, Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT).

Class size is limited to 45.

Effective September 1, 2017, the cost of visitor parking is no longer included in our program registration fees.
