Description


Intergenerational Mental Health: keeping parents and babies in mind in perinatal mental health work

Join practitioners, service users and academics to explore how a whole-family approach can break the intergenerational cycle of mental health problems.

The conference aims to highlight ground-breaking academic research, showcase innovative practice, and tell the stories of perinatal mental health service users across the UK. The conference will cover topic areas such as:

  • the relationship between maternal mental health and parent-infant relationships

  • trauma-focused care and taking an intergenerational perspective

  • using evidence-based psychological approaches in your practice – such as videofeedback and mentalisation

  • working holistically with families experiencing domestic abuse

  • assessing psychosocial risk and resilience in complex cases

Speakers include international experts, including:

  • Susie Orbach, author, journalist and psychotherapist
  • Shiela Redfern, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Head of Clinical Services, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
  • Louise Howard, Head of Women’s Mental Health, King’s College London & Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist
  • Claudia Buss, Professor of Medical Psychology, Charité University Medicine Berlin
  • Carmine Pariante, Professor of Biological Psychiatry, King’s College London & Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist

Posters

We welcome posters showing innovative research and/or practice.

All posters should be A1 size and clearly indicate the organisation(s) involved, the authors, and the project’s aims and objectives. Some posters may want to follow the structure of a scientific abstract with title, aims, method, findings, and conclusions, however other posters may wish to follow another structure of their choosing that fits their specific project work.
