Training and Consultation
The Postpartum Wellness Center is passionate about helping to advance to the field of mental health. To this end, we hope to contribute to an expansive national network of well-trained specialists by offering advanced training, consultation, supervision, and mentorship for professionals looking to enhance their skills as specialists in the field of perinatal mental health.
PWCB offers opportunities for learning through webinars on special topics related to Perinatal Mental Health.
Bringing the Baby Into the Room—Integrating Principles from Infant Mental Health (IMH) into Perinatal Mental Health Treatment.
Friday August 9th from 10:30-12:30 MST
This webinar will introduce Perinatal Mental Health therapists to the principles that underly IMH, and will provide an overview of IMH assessment tools and practices. The goal of this webinar is to support therapists specializing in Maternal Mental Health to consider ways that they may expand the scope of their treatment to include specialized consideration of babies and young children.
Online Reflective Supervision Group for Perinatal Mental Health Therapists
For those practitioners looking for more in-depth support and mentorship in their Perinatal Mental Health Work, Postpartum Wellness Center of Boulder will be offering online bi-weekly group supervision beginning in mid-August.
This group will meet bi-weekly over four months and will offer clinical reflective supervision in a closed group context, giving clinicians the opportunity to develop close and trusting collegial relationships with one another as they develop their professional identities. Through a combination of case study and consultation, therapists will continue to refine their skills and gain confidence in the application of their knowledge to their work with perinatal clients.
While the Bringing Baby Into the Room Webinar is not a prerequisite to attending this group, participants may find that attending the webinar or having some previous experience with reflective practice and reflective supervision may be helpful.
Pulling from both Constructivist and Reflective approaches to supervision, Emily Horowitz, Clinical Director, offers in person and virtual individual supervision and consultation to clinicians looking to refine their skills as Perinatal Mental Health specialists.
The Constructivist and Reflective models of supervision help facilitate meaningful clinical awareness for the supervisee, promote self-reflective capacity, and support clinicians to develop their unique professional identities while keeping in mind the unique factors that require attention and care in perinatal populations.
