Intervening to Prevent Child Maltreatment in Mothers with Major Psychiatric Disorders: A Comprehensive Approach (Workshop 79)
As many as 60 percent of mothers with major mental disorders relinquish or lose custody of their children at some point in their lives. Often, custody loss occurs in the first years of parenthood. The primary purpose of this workshop is to provide an integrative overview of clinical services and treatments that address at-risk parenting in mothers with major mental illness. Presenters describe a specialized service that includes a social support group, medication management, and individual psychotherapy combined with parenting coaching to illustrate how a comprehensive treatment approach can be implemented.
