Perinatal Psychopharmacology Advanced Training
Postpartum Support International presents a 6-hour advanced course on psychiatric pharmacology during pregnancy and lactation, taught by perinatal psychiatric experts. It is an interactive, case-based advanced seminar, covering differential diagnosis, medication challenges, case examples, research on medication safety, and your questions. Participants should have previously completed at least 14 hours of perinatal mental health training.
This course is a pre-requisite for the perinatal mental health certification, in the psychopharmacology specialty. PSI’s two-day Perinatal Mood Disorders: Components of Care training or an equivalent fourteen-hour perinatal mood disorders certificate course is a pre-requisite for this advanced training.
