Training Overview Description

This workshop addresses the importance of helping the pregnant woman achieve a healthier mental and emotional state during pregnancy in order to improve the chances that she and her child will experience a healthier relationship. Interventions allow for individualized and creative approaches that capture your client’s interest.

  • Research has shown that a mother’s mental health and emotional state during pregnancy has an immediate and direct impact on her lifelong relationship with her infant.
  • In turn, the health of the mother-child relationship directly impacts the child’s quality of life, possibly throughout the lifespan.
  • By helping the pregnant woman improve her mental and emotional state during pregnancy, we are able to increase the chances that she and her child will experience a healthier relationship.

Training Points

This training covers issues critical to the development of the early mother-child relationship including:

  • High-risk pregnancies
  • Unresolved grief or loss
  • Normal, typical course of pregnancy
  • Domestic violence
  • Women experiencing depression or other mental health disruptions

This workshop will cover certain competencies required for Endorsement®. AK-AIMH administers the Endorsement® to recognize the attainment of professional competencies in working with children 0-3. For more information about the Endorsement®, please visit our website.
