Psychotherapy with Black Mothers; Exploring the Art of Holding within the Context of Race with Angel Montfort, PhD. A workshop on how the Art of Holding can be applied within the context of race to treat Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders: * Black women are twice as likely to experience Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders, yet are significantly less likely to receive adequate treatment. * Systemic racism and provider implicit bias are well-known factors in perpetuating these disparities. * As mental health clinicians, we are positioned to enact change by acknowledging that racism exists, and actively fighting it in our practices. In this workshop, participants will: 1. Learn how both historically and in the present, racism impacts the perinatal experiences of Black women and Black birthing people 2. Examine the relationship between race and clinical presentations 3. Discuss ways to support Black clients in a meaningful way utilizing the Holding approach 4. Be invited to discuss relevant cases and receive consultation. Dr. Montfort is committed to providing treatment to culturally diverse populations, and has specialized experience treating Perinatal Mood Disorders, Traumatic Stress Disorders, Women's Issues, Military-Related Issues, and Adjustment Issues.
