Pregnancy Loss for Psychotherapists: Tools, Clinical Skills and Diagnostic Controversies
Training is postponed at this time and we are currently working on rescheduling it. Please register on the waitlist if you are interested in attending when it is rescheduled.

Presenter: Deborah Rich, PhD, LP

Did you know?

20-25% of all pregnancies do not survive to a healthy live birth. Therefore,
most psychotherapists treating adults in their reproductive years will encounter this tragic
experience. The ideal course of treatment is for the client to remain with his or her trusted
psychotherapist as long as the therapist has basic competency in care following pregnancy loss. The overall therapeutic goal is healthy integration of this traumatic experience.

This small group intensive workshop provides a foundation of essential medical knowledge to build specialty skills in clinical evaluation and intervention. This extremely sensitive material is presented in a safe and supportive environment which facilitates participant learning, self-awareness and self-care. Lecture and video will address these topics: best practice in the medical setting, medical terminology and procedures, patterns of perinatal grief, normal trajectory of grief and differential diagnosis. Case examples are used to illustrate psychotherapeutic interventions with an emphasis on differences by gender, culture, religion and sexual orientation.

This training is intended for therapists. PS-WA is hosting a half day training for others who work with families during the perinatal period, information and registration on that training can be found here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4525801
