This on-demand workshop will introduce attendees to the wide range of disruptive events that can occur in the perinatal period, teach them to identify characteristics of those events that induce ruptures in the normative developmental path of family-building, and to recognize the common clinical presentations of patients suffering in the aftermath of disruptive and traumatizing perinatal events. It will introduce attendees to the Three Core Tasks parents face during the perinatal period (Davis & Stein, 2003), namely: 1. Development of Parental Identity for the current baby(ies), 2. Managing Emotions, and 3. Managing Relationships. This comprehensive framework guides clinicians around history-taking and case conceptualization, allowing them more nuance and specificity as they assess ruptures in the perinatal period.
