Event description

Description

Join us for a training, Treatment and Prevention of Traumatic Birth: Informed Clinicians empowering Clients, to enhance your ability to support and treat women who have experienced a traumatic birth. We are excited to have Catharine McDonald, MS, NCC, LPC and Stefanie Trudeau, CD (DONA), CLC together to present this valuable information. This training is for Mental Health Clinicians, Doulas, Childbirth Educators and others who treat or support this population. Expect to learn aobut what is traumatic birth?; when does it occur?; common presentations in psychotherapy; clinical interventions for traumatic birth; prevention & collaboration within a diverse perinatal team supporting women; and evidence-based birth.

After this program, clinicians will be able to identify antenatal women at risk for traumatic birth, how trauma history can impact their psychosocial development as it relates to being a pregnant woman in need of prenatal medical care, and how psychoeducation and counseling can prepare them for a positive birth experience in turn reducing likelihood of lingering post-traumatic symptoms. Clinicians will be able to identify evidence-based birth practices and implement informed and relevant psychotherapy interventions to help traumatized postpartum clients and their partners process their experience, reduce traumatic stress symptoms and reduce impact on the mother-baby attachment process.

The training is June 16, 2017 from 9 am - 4:30 pm (registration begins at 8:30 am).

Location: Veterans Memorial Clubhouse, 100 Sunset Ridge Drive, East Hartford, CT 06118

There will be light refreshments, coffee/tea/water available in the morning, lunch is included and coffee/tea/water dessert in the afternoon.

There will be regular breaks throughout the day and the lunch will be a time for networking with your fellow professionals.

This training is pending approval for 6 CEUs through NASW/CT for LCSWs, LPCs, LMFTs and PhDs

This training will also be eligible for credits for doulas.

We hope you'll join us!
