PERINATAL PSYCHOLOGY 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 employed in services where at least part of their role is to deliver psychological treatments to parents experiencing mental health difficulties during pregnancy and/or the first postnatal year. The training is open to any of the above indivudals who are working in any part of the United Kingdom.

Each day of the training builds on the last and is progressively suited to perinatal clinicians with increasing levels of therapeutic skills. All days of the training require a solid knowledge of cognitive behavioural therapy with adults.

Although delegates may not wish to sign up for all three days of the training, please refer to the advice listed below on each of the individual training days around clinician suitability.

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 (Monday 27th November 2017).

The objectives for the day will be to increase knowledge and skills in assessing, formulating and delivering evidence-based interventions for parents experiencing depression, generalised anxiety and panic in the perinatal period. 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 and clinical psychologists. CPNs, midwives and health visitors may also find it relevant to their work.

  • Day 2: Enhanced perinatal psychology practice (Tuesday 28th November 2017).

The objectives for the day will be to increase knowledge and skills in assessing, formulating and delivering evidence-based interventions for parents experiencing OCD, health anxiety, social phobia, and PTSD (including birth trauma) in the perinatal period, as well as competence in managing complex risk and working with the mother and baby in therapy.

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

  • Day 3: Advanced perinatal therapy skills (Wednesday 29th November 2017).

The objectives for the day will be to increase knowledge and skills in assessing, formulating and working with parents who have experienced fertility difficiulties, pregnancy or neonatal loss, complex trauma, tokophobia, bonding difficulties and perinatal mania and psychosis, as well as knowledge of medication use in the perinatal period.

Day 3 is primarily for clinical psychologists. Other doctoral level therapists with expertise in cognitive behavioural or inter-personal therapy may also find it relevant to their work. We would expect all clinicians signing up for this day to have at least one years experience of working with perinatal populations or have completed day 1 and 2 of the training.

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 Helen Sharp, Dr Fiona Challacombe, Dr Aimee Poote & Dr Camilla Rosan.

How to prepare for the training

All participants at the training are required 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.

If you have previously completed any relevant perinatal courses, this requirement may be waived, to find out more about this access of equivalence pathway, please contact Dr Camilla Rosan on crosan@mentalhealth.org.uk
