NEW!Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Free Lesson for Professionals!

Free access to an evidence-based, expert-led lesson on Generalized Anxiety Disorder during the perinatal timeframe

While our world faces an unprecedented crisis, the vulnerable among us feel the effects most acutely. As a mental health professional, it's very likely that your clients in the perinatal population are facing increased anxiety, whether they are pregnant, trying to conceive, grieving a loss, or simply navigating the challenges of new parenthood in an uncertain world.

This free lesson is an excerpt from the Seleni Institute's signature online course, the Maternal Mental Health Intensive. You will learn about Generalized Anxiety Disorder during the perinatal timeframe, and its prevalence, symptoms, and treatments (including short- and long-term recommended interventions such as psychoeducation, behavioral interventions, cognitive restructuring, and psychodynamic therapy). Lastly, reflect on what you learned with a case study and test your knowledge in a short quiz.
