The JSSA (Jewish Social Service Agency) Training Institute presents:
The Silence and Secrecy of Reproductive Trauma
(3 continuing education credits)
Julia Bindeman, Psy.D.
December 6, 9:00 AM-12:15 PM
Reproductive trauma impacts millions of Americans, and yet they are rarely talked about. It is not typically something that a clinician asks about, unless it is the presenting concern, but can still be an important factor in treatment. Statistics indicate that 25% of known pregnancies end in loss, that 1 in 8 couples will experience infertility and that 1 in 7 new moms will experience a perinatal mood disorder. Becoming sensitive and proficient in the variety of reproductive traumas that an individual might experience is increasingly an important competence to obtain. This workshop will introduce the various aspects of reproductive health to mental health practitioners.
Participants will learn to:
1. Describe the various types of reproductive losses and their nuances.
2. List methods that will enable clients to advocate for themselves as they work through the changed reproductive (or grief) process.
3. Utilize self-care techniques that will help prevent burnout from working with this population
4. Describe the various types of perinatal mood disorders and techniques to combat them.
Dr. Julia Bindeman has experience working with a variety of areas of concern including: reproductive challenges (infertility, pregnancy loss, and post-partum issues) depression, anxiety, self image, body image, adjustments, and issues around life transitions. She has extensive experience working with both adolescents and adults. She views effective therapy as a collaborative effort and continually seek out feedback as to how treatment is progressing. Since she believes that there is a strong connection between body and mind, she incorporates mind/body integration techniques, such as yoga and relaxation, which can relieve stress, anxiety and numerous other issues.
This is a training for mental health professionals, and other health professionals.
