This 1 day symposium highlights what we all know: there is more to perinatal mental health and emotional wellness than postnatal depression. This is a hands on, at-the-coalface, crash cart for the busy clinician facing the ‘what to do now?’ moment in those sticky psychosocial consultations.
This full day seminar will provide participants with a much needed toolkit, including the latest research and clinical pearls on the most significant psycho-social stresses facing women in the perinatal period: family violence, perinatal grief and bereavement, substance abuse, coping with a traumatic delivery, psychological support in complex pregnancies, and - of course - the how and when of perinatal mental health screening, diagnosis and intervention.
This seminar is a must for all clinicians providing maternity care; mental health care providers, general practitioners, obstetricians, midwives, social workers and maternal and child health care providers.
Speakers include: Professor Kelsey Hegarty, Professor Sue Walker, Professor Stephen Tong, Dr Carol Vance, Keren Ludski, Dr Martien Snellen, Dr Jo Power, Dr Gaynor Blankley, and Dr Alison Fung.
