The British Psychological Society BPS Faculty for Perinatal Psychology and the Mums and Babies in Mind Project (a Maternal Mental Health Alliance project, hosted by the Mental Health Foundation and funded by the Big Lottery Fund) are delighted to announce three days of perinatal psychology workforce training.
The training is for anyone who delivers psychological treatments to parents experiencing mental health difficulties during pregnancy and/or the first postnatal year. It is open to anyone working in any part of the United Kingdom.
The course has been specifically designed to meet the needs of low and high-intensity Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) practitioners and perinatal clinical psychologists, although it is not limited to these groups. Perinatal clinicians may choose to attend any of the three training days that are most relevant to them and their current role.
The training will be skills-based, with an emphasis on treatment skill demonstrations, role play, and problem-based learning approaches.
The course is led by national and international leaders in perinatal psychology, including Dr Heather O’Mahen, Dr Kirstie McKenzie-McHarg, Dr Rachel Mycroft, Dr Helen Sharp, Dr Fiona Challacombe, Dr Aimee Poote & Dr Camilla Rosan.
Some free places are available to practitioners working in Mums and Babies in Mind (MABIM) project sites. To find out more, please contact Dr Camilla Rosan on firstname.lastname@example.org
