Description

PERINATAL IAPT WORKFORCE TRAINING - Foundation Level


Who is organising the course?

The training is being organised by the BPS Faculty for Perinatal Psychology and the Mums and Babies in Mind project.


Who is the training for?

The training is aimed at individuals who are working in IAPT services or equivalent primary care services where at least part of their role is to deliver psychological interventions to parents and babies where the parent is experiencing mild to moderate mental health difficulties during pregnancy and/or the first postnatal year. The training is open to any of the above professionals who are working in the United Kingdom.

Please note that both days of the training require a solid knowledge of cognitive behavioural therapy with adults.


What will the training involve?

The training will be primarily skills based, with an emphasis on treatment skill demonstrations, role plays, and problem-based learning approaches.

  • Day 1: A perinatal frame of mind in psychology practice (Tuesday 26th June 2018).

The objectives for the day will be to increase knowledge and skills in assessing, formulating and delivering evidence-based interventions for parents and babies when the parent is experiencing depression, generalised anxiety and panic in the perinatal period. It will also address group work approaches, linking with creches and where and how to include baby in the room. There will be seperate break out sessions to meet the different practice remits of the clinicians in attendance, giving these groups focused opportunities to practice applying perinatal knowledge to their skill base.

Day 1 is for low and high intensity IAPT workers. CPNs, assistant psychologists, midwives and health visitors may also find it relevant to their work.

  • Day 2: Enhanced perinatal psychology practice (Wednesday 27th June 2018).

The objectives for the day will be to increase knowledge and skills in assessing, formulating and delivering evidence-based interventions for parents and babies where the parent is experiencing OCD, PTSD (including birth trauma and secondary tokophobia), and parent-infant bonding difficulties in the perinatal period, as well as competence in managing complex risk in therapy.

Day 2 is for high intensity IAPT workers and cognitive behavioural therapists.


Who will be delivering the training?

The course is led by national and international leaders in perinatal psychology, including Dr Heather O'Mahen, Dr Kirstie McKenzie-McHarg, Dr Rachel Mycroft, Dr Fiona Challacombe, & Dr Camilla Rosan.


How to prepare for the training

All participants at the training are encouraged to complete the e-LfH perinatal mental health e-learning course (5 x 20-30 minute modules) prior to undertaking the course so that participants will be familiar with the key, fundamental perinatal knowledge necessary to undertake the exercises in the training.

The e-learning is open access to everyone. However to record your progress and completion of sessions, you will first need to register with e-LfH using any nhs email address here.

The e-learning course was developed by Health Education England (HEE) and consists of a set of 5 x 20 - 30 minute e-learning sessions. The sessions commence with 2 introductory sessions, which provide a broad overview of the topic and essential learning points for all health professionals. The 3 subsequent sessions focus on different stages in a mother’s journey – the pregnancy, birth and the first year of a child’s life.


How to pay for the training

The only way to attend the training is to buy tickets using a payment card through eventbrite. We are unable to process invoices or take any other form of payment.
