Mental health professionals today are confronted with the challenging task of guiding clients through unprecedented circumstances in a changing world. This Three-Course Bundle features Seleni's newest two-credit trainings, which equip clinicians with research-backed expertise and practical skills to provide compassionate support to populations with complex needs, as well as navigate the professional changes that accompany major life changes for practicing therapists.

The COVID-19 Pandemic, Trauma, and Grief - 2 CEUs

In addition to the many tragedies and disruptions, the methods by which we manage grief and loss have been upended as well. Human cultures have deeply ingrained traditions of honoring losses with family, friends, and communities, but in the era of social distancing, the long-established means by which we initiate and move through the grieving process have been changed or made impossible.

This professional training discusses normative and complicated grief, trauma, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and clinical tools to facilitate the grieving process and resolve trauma, specifically in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Maternal Mental Health Intensive for Young Parents (PMADs) - 2 CEUs

Pregnant and parenting teens contend with many of the same experiences of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and perinatal loss as grief as traditionally aged mothers, but in a different context that often includes additional social, economic, and developmental concerns. This course trains clinicians to provide comprehensive mental health care to this vulnerable population.

The Expectant Therapist - 2 CEUs

If you are a social worker, psychologist, therapist, counselor, or other professional currently practicing, balancing your work with your family-building journey presents a unique array of practical and personal concerns that you may feel unprepared for.

This one-of-its-kind course guides clinicians through the complex professional adjustments that will take place once you are expecting a child, from finances and logistics in the workplace to shifts in relationships and boundaries with clients.
