More about ACT for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health

This workshop builds on the work of psychologist and researcher Dr Koa Whittingham, and aims to help health professionals:

  • Understand how ACT applies to a perinatal population and how contextual behavioural science relates to other perinatal theoretical frames including attachment theory
  • Enhance the ability to apply ACT skills such as values clarification, cognitive defusion, mindfulness, and committed action to the perinatal context through demonstration, practice and discussion
  • Develop the ability to apply ACT flexibly, simply and subtly to perinatal mental health issues as they emerge in the clinical context

We achieve these objectives through several styles of presentation, including didactic learning, clinical case analysis, and group and partner experiential exercises to role play and practice application of strategies.
