21-When There's an Empty Baby Carriage: Assessment and Treatment of Grief In Black
Women Experiencing Infertility and Reproductive Loss

Description:

Because African American women experience mental health issues at similar rates
to their counterparts and are almost two times more likely to be diagnosed with infertility, it is
extremely likely that at some point in their career, mental health counselors will encounter and
work with a woman fitting this demographic. Counselors must be equipped to work with this
unique population and help address the psycho-emotional impact of infertility and reproductive
loss, as well as work to mediate the usage gap in formal mental health help-seeking. This
presentation focuses on issues related to perinatal grief and loss in African American women
experiencing reproductive loss and infertility. Applying social justice and feminist frameworks,
participants will also receive effective and culturally adaptive clinical strategies that promote
positive treatment outcomes in grieving infertile African American women experiencing
reproductive loss.


Learning Objectives: 

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Describe and define infertility and its impact on African American women.
2.  Discuss various forms of perinatal grief related to reproductive loss and infertility in African American women.
3. Understand how to apply various culturally adaptive treatments and interventions that promote positive treatment outcomes in infertile African American women experiencing reproductive loss.

Description:

1 out of 7 women experience perinatal depression and 1 out of 10 fathers experience post-partum depression.  Left untreated, PMADs can impact interpersonal relationships, mother-baby attachment, finances, and lead to or exacerbate substance use.  Mental health clinicians need to understand PMADs and its impact, have knowledge of various methods to assess and screen for PMADs, and apply effective treatment modalities. This CEU training will provide an overview of perinatal mood disorders, useful screening tools, and psychotherapeutic treatment models.


Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this training participants will be able to:
