The symposium which was held on November 2019 focused on trauma and perinatal mental health. Whether it be trauma related to war, natural disasters, violence, childhood abuse or domestic violence, trauma is a major risk factor for perinatal mental illness. Trauma can have an enduring impact on the mother and the parent-infant relationship which then affects later child outcomes. The impact of relational trauma on the developing infant is often under-estimated, while the value of parent-infant work is misunderstood. These presentations highlight important insights from practice and research on trauma and mental health in pregnant or new parents.
