Abstract:

Until recently, little research had been conducted to investigate new mothers’ thoughts of infant-related harm and their relationship to postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder and parenting behaviours. In this talk I will present data from our pilot study of new mothers’ thoughts of infant-related harm, outline the features and risk factors for postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder and discuss the cognitive behavioural model and treatment of postpartum obsessive compulsive disorder.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: 1. What are unwanted, intrusive thoughts and who experiences them?
Objective 2: What are postpartum thoughts of infant-related harm?
Objective 3: What is obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)?
