Treating Mood Disorders Related to Childbirth
Often a period that is described as bliss by outsiders, the period during pregnancy and postpartum are frequently described as a blur for those going through it. This workshop will explore perinatal mood and anxiety disorders: emotional complications of pregnancy and the postpartum period. Emotional complications are the most common complication of pregnancy and often go unreported. In this workshop we will explore the prevalence of these complications, the challenges to accessing appropriate care, and treatment approaches, primarily CBT, to perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. The workshop format includes case presentations, resource identification, and screening tools.
