(Self Study, 1.5 CEs) Nurturing the Nurturer: Creative Interventions for New Mothers

This course is worth 1.5 continuing education contact hour for LCATs in New York state.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

New mothers are an underserved clinical population despite experiencing an overwhelming amount of biopsychosocial challenges. This is a look at how an art therapist, a first-time mother herself, supports a young mother with a trauma history using creative interventions to work toward a more integrated and compassionate sense of self.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES


    1. Participants will be able to identify 2 types of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.      
    2. Participants will be able to list 3 clinical challenges new mothers face.     
    3. Participants will be able to name 2 benefits of using creative clinical interventions with this population.

    A reminder about self-study and continuing education:

    For LCATs in New York State, a self-study course can only equal 1/3 of the required contact hours for your license renewal. So, if your license renews in three years, you will require 36 continuing education contact hours, thus a maximum of 12 of those hours can be self-study. The rest of your contact hours must be live events. This includes online webinars, which CreativeArtsTherapiesOnline.com will be offering on a monthly basis, starting in February of 2017. All enrolled students will be updated on new live and self-study course launches. So keep an eye out for our newsletter!
