Event Details

About this training

Therapists often feel uncertain about how to effectively support clients in their family planning journey, which can be dynamic and complex in today’s cultural paradigm. As societies have progressed, individuals have gained more access to information and resources, leading to increased freedom and choices regarding family planning. However, societal, political, cultural, and familial family planning norms can vary widely, resulting in individuals and couples feeling overwhelmed by the decision making process. Additionally, certain groups within society continue to experience profound stigma, financial strain, and stress related to family planning that further impact an individual’s reproductive identity.

Please join Victoria Stroz, LCPC, PMH-C, from Wildflower Center for Emotional Health, as we explore modern-day family planning from a biopsychosocial perspective in order to assist psychotherapy clients in intentionally and actively exploring their desires, values, and options.

Learning objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • learn contemporary terms, concepts, and research related to family planning, such as reproductive identity, the myth of maternal instinct, and statistics related to reproduction and family planning.
  • gain an understanding of the impact that societal, cultural, and familial expectations and norms have on individual family planning challenges.
  • facilitate family planning discussions and activities in an effort to assist clients in navigating a variety of aspects of family planning, including identity development, values, role transitions, and grief.

Continuing Education

1.5 continuing education credits are offered upon completion for the following license types: LPC, LCPC, LSW, LCSW, Clinical Psychology, LMFT.
