Dr Kylee Forrest
Kylee has experience working with pregnant women and new parents. As well as seeing clients in various stages of pregnancy and parenthood privately at Benchmark Psychology, she also facilitates the Premature Baby Triple P research project at the Mater Mothers Hospital. Within this role, Kylee supports the parents of prematurely-born infants for up to two years and frequently encounters perinatal mental health problems including anxiety and depression. Kylee’s passion is in supporting families through this challenging but highly important time and helping to foster healthy attachment relationships.
Beyond Blue have recently published results from a national survey indicating that, while antenatal and postnatal mental health difficulties were common (more than 1/7 women), they were widely misunderstood by the public. Alarmingly, they also found that the current healthcare system is not effectively monitoring and treating the symptoms of PND. This seminar will focus on the psychologist’s role in treating PND including how to identify the early warning signs for antenatal and postnatal difficulties in both fathers and mothers. Effective, evidence-based treatment approaches will also be discussed.
