This learning event aims to help participants deepen their understanding and build on what they already know about depression and the way it affects women around the birth of their child. It will explore some of the potential causes and reasons why women may become depressed at this important juncture and how to support those impacted by the condition and their carers, family and friends.
This course is designed to help professionals understand and identify the dynamics and psychological issues arising from working with victims of violence or other traumatic life events. Support is given to address the issues with the client and to promote strategies for self-care, highlighting the appropriate use of supervision and debriefing. It provides an opportunity to recognise and celebrate achievements and reflect on challenges met at a personal and professional level.
