Workshop Description

Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, often referred to as “postpartum depression”, are known to occur in 1 of every 7 postpartum women.  Experts believe that reported figures are low, and that as many as 60% of cases are undiagnosed, while up to 50% of diagnosed women do not receive treatment.  Risk factors include depression during pregnancy, low social support, stressful life events during pregnancy, preterm birth and traumatic birth experiences.

This workshop focuses on recognizing the nuances of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and has the goal of enabling therapists to identify and distinguish clients at risk from clients who are experiencing symptoms typical of the perinatal period. Participants will consider strategies for Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMAD) treatment, and will learn to design effective and appropriate interventions to relieve perinatal distress and to improve the overall functioning of the family system during this vulnerable period in the life of the family.

Workshop Level – Advanced

Learning Objectives

  1. Recognize and describe how and why mood disorders in the perinatal period are unique.
  2. Differentiate between “normal” perinatal experiences and symptoms that are of clinical concern.
  3. Design effective, efficient, and appropriate interventions utilizing screening tools, interview questions, and The Postpartum Stress Center’s Voice of Depression Response Model.
  4. Discuss the impact of special circumstances (breastfeeding, NICU, perinatal loss, adoption, depression in the partner) on therapeutic process and treatment planning.
