Today an abundance of training opportunities exist for healthcare professionals seeking to specialize in the identification and treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Karen Kleiman’s Art of Holding is a clinical approach rooted in psychoanalytic theory that integrates cognitive behavioral and mindfulness tools for relief from perinatal distress. This course provides training in the basic tenets of the Holding Paradigm and instruction on how to integrate skills for The Six Holding Points into any form of maternal care practice. Learning Objectives: * Distinguish Karen Kleiman’s Art of Holding Perinatal Distress from other therapeutic approaches for treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. * Integrate use of holding points and understanding of the Holding Paradigm to improve assessment of symptoms and develop rapport in consideration of perinatal specific resistance. Apply holding skills to address perinatal specific losses in practice. * Utilize six holding points to reduce therapist reactivity during therapeutic sessions in consideration of implicit and explicit cultural and gender bias and ways perinatal stage is uniquely triggering for therapists.
