Taught by experienced practitioner and lecturer Anna Lyons, this course will challenge you to reflect and explore your own practice in the context of perinatal mental health scenarios, with support and discussion on ways to enhance and evolve effective approaches.
Available at our London campus or delivered locally, this course will equip you with a deeper understanding of crucial perinatal issues, including depression among women, with particular focus on key contributory factors such as screening, social issues, mental health history and postnatal support. You will be able to develop your awareness of perinatal mental health needs and explore contributory factors such as screening, social factors, previous mental health issues, support after the birth.
Armed with these valuable insights and reflective skills you will become more effective in your current practice and obtain an excellent base knowledge for pursuing further academic study if you wish.
