This conference will focus on two important aspects of perinatal mental health: 1) women in pregnancy and in the postpartum phase and beyond who suffer from a DSM mental illness such as depression and the potential deterioration of their conditions in these phases of life; and 2) their abilities to engage in parenting crucial for the psychosocial development of newborn children can be compromised significantly, affecting all family members. This interprofessional conference utilizes multidisciplinary scientific knowledge including neurobiology and epigenetics, psychiatry, infant mental health, psychodynamic and interpersonal psychotherapy theories, and public and community health. Teaching methods include lecture, discussion, and case study analysis.
Upon completion, you will be better able to:
- Discuss the epidemiology and characteristics of perinatal mental health issues that affect women, their infant children, and other family members.
