NEW!Maternal Mental Health Intensive Online: Perinatal Loss & Grief

Perinatal Loss & Grief

8 Hours, 8 CE Credits
(5 CE credits for MHCs)

Miscarriage and stillbirth are profound losses that are rarely talked about and little understood. Why? In our society, we have almost no understanding of how women and families who experience reproductive loss and child loss grieve and recover. With appropriate care—informed in best practices and evidence-based treatment—women and their families can learn ways to come to terms with loss while also reengaging with a life that is joyful again.

This training, based on our extensive clinical experience, and the expert training of our clinical team, examines theoretical and clinical applications related to parental grief and bereavement, including current theory and research, practices and models of effective counseling and psychotherapy and potential obstacles to clinician effectiveness.
