Perinatal/Somatic Case Consultation Group
Wouldn’t it be great to belong to a group of therapists who understand the challenges of what you do every day with and for mothers? Would you like to have a place that is for YOU, where you can receive some of the support and care that you offer to your clients?
This group is for YOU….if you are a psychotherapist interested in maternal mental health. We are welcoming new and experienced perinatal mental health therapists. Somatic approaches, such as bioenergetic analysis, help to bring a here-and-now emphasis to therapy, helping people to connect deeply to their body experience including emotion. Somatic interventions are present-focused, efficient for busy clients, and meld very well with your other therapeutic modalities.
We offer an online case consultation group each year starting in September. Psychotherapists who are interested in perinatal mental health are invited to apply. The group meets on the fourth Friday of each month, September through May, from 1:00-3:00 pm Atlantic time. This is 12:00-2:00 pm Eastern time.
The group is limited in size to make sure everyone gets to participate fully. We emphasize a holistic, contextual approach to helping women and their families, including somatic interventions where applicable, along with other empirically supported treatments.
This group is a warmly welcoming place for therapists to share the challenges and celebrate the successes in working with mothers, babies, fertility issues, and people coping with early parenting. We are actively supporting the development of perinatal therapists in the Canadian Maritimes, but therapists from other provinces and countries are welcome to join.
The group provides 18 contact hours of professional consultation in perinatal mental health. Fill out the form below if you are interested in more information. The fee is $270.00 CAD for the nine months of meetings. Register before we begin and September is free! Total after discount is $240.00 CAD.
