    Perinatal Mental Health 30/11/2017

    Training Course, Event

    Mental wellbeing through conception, pregnancy and early parenting.

    This insightful workshop explores the factors which influence mental wellbeing in the perinatal period and what helps new families. A key focus of the training is the interdependence of parent wellbeing and infant mental health and how the attachment relationship can be protected when a parent is unwell.

    The emotional and psychological wellbeing of parents from conception through to 12 months after a baby is born (the perinatal period), is at once very vulnerable and profoundly important for the long term wellbeing of both parents and child.

    Common parent issues before or after a birth may include “Baby Blues”, depression, anxiety and psychosis along with infant issues such as attachment, emotional regulation, sleep and feeding patterns.

    Content covered includes:

    • Vulnerabilities of the perinatal period
    • Preventative strategies
    • Symptoms and causes of problems
    • Protective factors
    • Infant mental health
    • Working with family and community
    • Treatments and supports
    • Encouraging help-seeking behaviours
    • Where to seek further help
