Understanding and managing the emotional impact of infertility

Dr. Shoshana Wortman will lead this evening that focuses on the thoughts and feelings associated with infertility and treatment. We will look at common triggers for difficult emotions, as well as the effects on self-perception and relationships. We will then explore methods of coping, including identifying support, ways to communicate needs, and the importance of self-care. The goal of this presentation is to validate the complex and difficult experience of the fertility journey and offer you skills to support your emotional well-being along the way.

Shoshana Wortman, Psy.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist who has been supporting and guiding individuals and families for 15 years. She received her Doctorate and Master's degrees from The Institute of Graduate Clinical Psychology at Widener University.

Dr. Wortman works with children, adults, and families and feels privileged to support people in recognizing and building their strengths as they traverse diverse and often difficult experiences. In recent years, she developed a specialized interest and focus on working with individuals and couples struggling with fertility. She leads an infertility support group, conducts evaluations for Assisted Reproductive Technology, and provides counseling to support people on their fertility journeys. Dr. Wortman validates and supports each person's unique experience while building coping skills for the ongoing roller coaster of emotions that often accompanies efforts to conceive.
