Preventing & Treating Depression During the Perinatal Period
Depression among women during pregnancy and the postpartum period is a major public health problem, with implications for women and families. Despite this, existing interventions for the prevention and treatment of depression during this lifecycle phase are limited in addressing women’s needs. In this talk, Dr. Dimidjian will discuss the ways in which a clinical psychological science approach to prevention and intervention helps to identify specific skills that support women’s well-being as well as delivery methods that prioritize access. Multiple examples and empirical findings will be provided to illustrate the ways in which the thoughtful integration of science, community, and technology can increase our understanding of practices to promote enduring individual and social well-being.
Reception to follow. The public is cordially invited.
