Centre for Perinatal Psychology provides training, supervision, consultation and mentorship to those interested in, or currently working with, a perinatal population. We are dedicated to supporting the community of perinatal and infant mental health workers through our professional development activities.
We have numerous psychologists within the Centre for Perinatal Psychology who provide supervision
… to individuals, groups and organisations. While we are dotted around Australia, we also make the most of technology and connect via video conferencing link up, so geographic location need not be an impediment to accessing our quality services.
Our perinatal and infant psychologists are uniquely positioned to provide supervision services when working with a perinatal population. In addition to full accreditation as psychologists, our hand-picked supervisors have also undertaken additional specialised training in perinatal and infant mental heath.
Reflective supervision focuses on relational aspects of perinatal, infant and family therapeutic work, with an emphasis on parallel process of partnering between supervisor and practitioner which promotes and supports the relationship between practitioner and parent/infant and then the parent and infant.
REFLECTIVE SUPERVISION IS CONSIDERED A CORE COMPENTECY FOR WORKING WITH A PERINATAL POPULATION:
Reflection is one of the eight core competency areas identified by the Michigan Association of Infant Mental Health (MI-AIMH) and also endorsed by AAIMHI WA in their Australian version of the Competency Guidelines.
“Building competency in IMH requires the development of a unique knowledge base and skill set specific to infancy and early parenthood, as well as reflective practice supervision experience that leads to best practice.” – AAIMHI WA Competency Guidelines for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship-Focused Practice Promoting Infant Mental Health®
Centre for Perinatal Psychology supervisors are experienced in the provision of reflective supervision with individuals and groups.
Consultation to organisations is also a strength of our team.
