Course Description

Participants will learn the basics of IPT for perinatal women and families during the course.  The course is equivalent to a LEVEL A General course in IPT, but will focus specifically on perinatal applications.  

This course is open to all interested clinicians at any level of training.  We suggest Interpersonal Psychotherapy: A Clinician’s Guide (2nd Edition) as reading prior to the training. All participants will receive a Level A certificate upon completion of the course.

A “Bring a Friend” discount is available to clinicians who attend with one or more friends; coming in a group of two or more entitles each participant to a $50 discount.  You can apply that discount using the paypal link for payment below.
