 “But she just had a baby!” The Myths and Lies of Motherhood

Katayune Kaeni, Psy.D.


Maternal mental health complications have been long overlooked, under-diagnosed and undertreated in part because of the myths that surround pregnancy and motherhood, which paint a picture of a happy and fulfilled woman doing what she is meant to do with her life. Unfortunately, this social construct of motherhood is damaging and unrealistic. Also, when postpartum depression does get into the news, it’s misrepresented and sensationalized out of context. The hard reality is that 15-20% of pregnant and postpartum women will experience a perinatal mood or anxiety disorder. That’s roughly 1 in 6.

These statistics are high. Often these mothers are suffering in plain view and in silence. There is quite a bit of pressure to conform to idealized motherhood, along with the absence of education for mothers or healthcare providers about what can happen during the perinatal time.

This presentation will go into detail about how and why mood disorders are different in the reproductive period. We will discuss the different diagnoses, screening tools, treatment options, and resources for maternal mental health. This information is essential when working with women and men who are in the reproductive phase. Without it, we are missing key factors of treatment and recovery and potentially leaving our clients at risk for continuation or worsening of symptoms.

Please join us in this presentation, gain a deeper understanding of this vulnerable and delicate time of life transition, ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask, and walk away feeling better equipped to help the mothers and families who are already in your office.

Course Description

This two-hour maternal mental health presentation focuses on clinical and treatment considerations for women and families who suffer from Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. We will cover some of the myths and realities for mothers (and fathers). The training covers statistics, diagnosis, screening tools, treatment options, and resources for maternal mental health complications.

Course Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the complex factors that can contribute to the development of a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety disorder (PMAD) and articulate why specialized training is essential.
  2. Discuss and describe the common mental health diagnoses during the perinatal period, including statistics and prevalence.
  3. Utilize and compare screening tools for perinatal mood disorders.
  4. Explain treatment options for psychotherapy, know when to refer for medication evaluation, and apply supportive techniques for this population.

President's Message:  


Happy New Year, I hope your 2017 is filled with great health, happiness,and prosperity

 

In my practice and even amongst my friends I keep hearing people say that they want to put “2016 to bed” and are looking forward to 2017to be a better year. As I look back at 2016, I felt that the year was not too bad for me, personally, I was able to accomplish most of my goals with only a few setbacks and a couple failures. However, you know what they say about failures, “they’re new opportunities to learn.” I would attest that is true,but I do tend to be a fairly upbeat person. I am looking forward to 2017 with great anticipation of the possibilities of what we can accomplish together. I know our program schedule for 2017 is packed with wonderful speakers and in February we are again having Dave Jensen come to speak about Law and Ethics.This is a great way to get the 6 hour CEUs, have lunch, network with fantastic therapists, and learn. It is always a great day and I hope you will join us.       

I wanted to share with those of you who take insurance of a change coming up for 2017. Cigna and Magellan will now pay for “teletherapy.” This is important as some clients in our practices cannot make it to our office on a regular basis. Or maybe your specialty is so sought after you are receiving referrals from up and down the state. If you are paneled with each company orif your clients have a PPO plan, telehealth is 100% covered. Just remember that we can’t use Skype or Facetime for this service but there are plenty of HIPAA-secure video platforms out there that are easy to use. Another update I wanted to share is the State of California Board of Behavioral Sciences, affectionately called BBS, has also updated the Statutes and Regulations relating to the Practices of Professional Clinical Counseling/ Marriage and Family Therapy/Educational Psychology/ Clinical Social Work. The highlights I found interesting included as of January 1, 2018, the term “Intern”will be changed to Associate for MFTs and PCCs, bringing MFTs & PCCs into the same terminology as Social Workers and providing the general public with a better understanding that they do possess a Master’s level education, they are just collecting hours to sit for the boards. The second highlight is the change of practicum hours to include direct client contact and delete equivalencies; prohibit out-of-degree remediation of“assessment” and “diagnosis” in core content areas.  This regulation was passed partly due to some online universities not requiring direct client hours in practicum classes. You can find the complete handout from the BBS@  http://www.bbs.ca.gov/pdf/publications/lawsregs.pdf

Are you one to make new Year resolutions? I am not the type to set up resolutions.However, I do have goals that I work towards monthly, but I don’t set the goal just because it’s a new year.  If you are the type to make resolutions what types of resolutions do you intend to make? Are they big resolutions or small ones? Do you actually keep them or do they change over the year? I would be interested to know your thoughts.

Lastly, I hope that in 2017 you think about some local chapter service.  It really doesn’t take that much time and with “many hands make light work” as my dad used to say. This is true and just think about the great people you will meet by your service.

Let’s make this year a fantastic success!

 

Sherry Shockey-Pope, IE-CAMFT President
