Research has identified disparities between women and men in regard to risk, prevalence, presentation, course, and treatment of mental disorders. Compared with men, women are twice as likely to experience PTSD with greater prevalence of symptoms of hypervigilance, anxiety, and depressive symptoms. In part, this is due to the notably high rates of exposure to relationship traumas. Current statistics suggest that 1 in 3 women experience at least one incident of sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking within their lifetime. According to best practices in mental health treatment, a focus on women’s mental health is an imperative. Often traumatic events begin in childhood. Such adverse childhood experiences are associated with increased rates of chronic physical health pain and illness conditions in adulthood. Because of this link, a mind-body approach to care allows the clinician to attend to the impact of trauma on the body and physical health.

Drawing upon her background in somatic psychology and as a certified yoga teacher, Dr. Schwartz shares her integrative mind-body approach to care with specific attention to practical tools for mental and emotional wellbeing. Within this engaging recording, you will learn how trauma can be associated with symptoms of premenstral dysphoria, post-partum depression, and menopausal transitions and learn key interventions to expand your therapy toolbox.



This online program is worth 1.5 hours CPD.
