Training Overview Description

This 13-hour 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. Promoting Maternal Mental Health During Pregnancy 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

Your fee covers tuition and all curriculum materials including two Promoting Maternal Mental Health During Pregnancy books: Theory and Practice and Interventions, as well as an assessment guide, and a USB flash drive with 56 reproducible handouts/interventions.
