About the Event

The COVID-19 Pandemic has seen a dramatic rise in perinatal anxiety, depression, and OCD.

New research shows that Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy can treat and prevent Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. Join me and learn how to use this evidence-based treatment in your work!

In this two day training, there will be didactic work, role plays, and group exercises. Day 1 will be Part 1: CBT for perinatal depression, anxiety, and basic OCD. Day 2 will be a deep dive into perinatal OCD and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). We will specifically emphasize the CBT skills needed for patients struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ruthie Arbit has been a therapist for over 10 years and specializes in maternal and pediatric mental health. She has certification in Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies from Boston University where she was taught by Daniel Beck. She has also done specialized training with "Moving Beyond Depression: In-Home CBT for the Perinatal Population", Postpartum Support International, and is certified in the DIR-Floortime model, a parent-child dyadic model.

12 CEU's will be awarded for social workers (with reciprocity for psychologists and counselors in MD and DC) and this course counts towards the PSI Advanced Training Requirement. There are a limited number of reduced fee spots available.

This is a two day training, October 24th 9am-4:30pm EST and October 25th 9am-4:30pm EST. If you have already taken the Part 1 full day CBT training, you may sign up for just Part 2 and use the code oneday at checkout.
