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 one in four 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).

General Admission: $60**
Class size is limited to 50.
