Psychological Birth Trauma: Causes, Assessment, and Treatment
Psychological birth trauma is a significant mental health concern to consider when working with perinatal families. Research shows up to 45% of people report they experience some degree of psychological trauma during childbirth. We now know that having a healthy baby is not enough and in my practice I continually hear: “I was grateful and I was traumatized.” This presentation prepares practitioners to know the causes of birth trauma, the symptoms to look out for, recognize how trauma differs from depression and ideas for treatment, including information about EMDR therapy as a treatment. Resources for continued learning will be shared.
