Free access to an evidence-based, expert-led lesson on Maternal Preoccupation Influenced by Perinatal Loss

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 emotional challenges, 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 maternal preoccupation and internal representations influenced by loss during the perinatal timeframe and in subsequent pregnancies. In recognition of National Grief Awareness Day on August 30, Seleni offers this resource to those who are supporting individuals coping with loss and grief.


Participants who complete this free lesson are not eligible for a certificate of completion. To take the certificate course, you will need to purchase access to the full Maternal Mental Health Intensive online training.
