Event description
A virtual training discussing what it means to hold the identities of a mother and a psychotherapist in the therapy room.

About this event

May is Maternal Mental Health Month. We are taking this time to examine how the psychotherapist’s transition to motherhood and experience of parenting a young child(ren) transforms the therapeutic relationship. Our role as psychotherapists is characterized by the ability to hold space, bear witness to vulnerability and change, and attend to the needs of our clients. Our role as mothers and therapists demands these very same things. Matrescence -- the process of becoming a mother -- fundamentally changes an individual. This inevitably alters the relationship between therapist and client.

In this 2-hour training geared toward mental health professionals who are mothers, are considering becoming mothers in the future, or are in the midst of this transition, Chrissy Ellis, LCSW, PMH-C and Eden Himidian, LCSW, RYT will discuss what it means to hold the identities of a mother and a psychotherapist in the therapy room. The facilitators will share their own clinical experiences, apply attachment theory, emphasize the importance of self-compassion and discuss how evidence-based treatments can guide us through this time of personal and professional change.

2 continuing education credits are offered upon completion for the following license types: LPC, LCPC, LSW, LCSW, Clinical Psychology, LMFT. The CEUs are sponsored by Mindful Path Behavioral Health and Wellness Inc. This training will count toward 2 of the 6 advanced hours needed for clinicians working to obtain their PMH-C through Postpartum Support International.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Chicago Birthworks Collective, a collective that comprises of more than a dozen birth workers who are committed to centering Black mamas and birthing people in their own reproductive experiences through radical attention, culturally affirming and centered education and a village centered model of care.
