Fostering a Healthy Transition to Parenthood

The Relationship Research Institute is offering a new educational
opportunity for birth educators, ARNPs, MDs, nurses, psychologists, social
workers, licensed counselors, doulas, midwives, students, and other
professionals who work with expectant couples and new parents.

In this powerful new workshop series, health care workers and educators will
have the chance to learn about the latest scientific findings on what
families experience during the transition to parenthood and how they can use
this research-based information to support the couples and families they
work with.

This two-day event will be held on Saturday June 11th and Sunday June 12th ,
2011, in Seattle, Washington. Saturday's full-day workshop will be held at
Swedish Medical Center and will focus on "Research-Based Educational
Strategies to Help Couples During the Transition to Parenthood". The Sunday
morning breakfast will be held at the World Trade Center Seattle and will
feature Penny Simkin, who will talk about "Bringing Home the Healthiest Baby
and Mother Possible--The Impact of Birth and Postpartum Practices".

Health care workers and educators may attend either or both days! The full
two-day program has been approved for 10 credits through the International
Childbirth Education Association (ICEA) for birth educators, and for 9.25
credits for Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, and MFTs in
Washington and Oregon states through R. Cassidy Seminars.
