D2.S14. WORKSHOP: MICROAGGRESSIONS AND GENDER: REACTING, RESPONDING AND RESILIENCY

Room: 0.6

Workshop by Linda Chaudron - Maine Medical Cente

Gender bias is common in academic medicine as in society at large. While there has been some success in addressing the most severe behaviors such as sexual harassment, the more common, everyday slights that are experienced by women in science and medicine continue to impact women's advancement in academic positions as well as their well-being. This workshop provides an in depth understanding of implicit bias and microaggressions and their impact on women in academic medicine. We focus on ways to mitigate biases as well as how to be an effective ally and how to engage others in being allies. The workshop will use a combination of presentation and academic information as well as interactive and role play opportunities to practice the information gained during the workshop. At the end of the workshop, participants will be better prepared to identify and react to gender bias and gender microaggressions in their work environments.

D2.S23. WORKSHOP: THE COMPLEX JOURNEY OF A PREGNANCY FOLLOWING LOSS

Room: 0.6

Workshop by Joann O'Leary - Star Legacy Foundation & Margaret Murphy - School of Midwifery, University College Cork Ireland

Pregnancy that follows the loss of a baby is a complex journey. The majority of couples will go onto achieve a subsequent pregnancy within a short timeframe. Navigating the ability to trust all will go well when the previous pregnancy ended in loss or failed attempts after infertility treatments can be dauting. This presentation will explore traditional and non-traditional relationships in a pregnancy following loss; how couples negotiating the multi-factorial decision making process in achieving a subsequent pregnancy after loss as well as the reproductive challenges including single parenthood by choice. Regardless of the different experiences of loss, grief, deciding and planning for a new baby fear and anxiety of another loss are common concerns for everyone. We will present parents embodied experience of pregnancy following loss and provide overview of a prenatal attachment intervention supporting the reciprocal relationship that is developing between parents and an unborn baby. The challenge becomes how to embrace a new unborn baby alongside continued grief while honouring and making meaning of the continued parental relationship for their deceased baby. All discussion will be based on the presenters’ clinical practice and research with these families.

D2.S24. WORKSHOP: BRIDGES ACROSS BORDERS: APPROACHES TO ASSESSMENT WITH WOMEN WITH BORDERLINE PERSONALITY PRESENTATIONS

Room: 0.7

Workshop by Poornima Bhola - National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences

Women with borderline personality presentations experience difficulties around the sense of self, identity and relationships. In this workshop, we draw from our work as practitioners and researchers to discuss the use of narrative and life-story approaches, in-depth interviews, and vignette-based measures to understand the developmental journeys of women with borderline personality presentations. These encompass their autobiographical memories and experiences with caregivers, markers of trauma and early adversities, their web of past and current relationships and their imagined and experienced roles as mothers.

Women with borderline personality presentations may encounter challenges in planning pregnancies, maneuvering the pregnancy and postpartum period. This period can evoke recollections of their own childhood, difficulties in negotiating relationships with caregivers and support network, concerns about bonding, and potential intensification of mood fluctuations. We will use illustrative case vignettes, reflective exercises for participants and share a range of sensitive assessment methodologies. These approaches can help us connect with the storied lives of women with borderline presentations, build and sustain a therapeutic alliance and inform personalized intervention plans.

D3.S05. WORKSHOP: IMPLEMENTATION OF MINDFUL PARENTING IN A MOTHER-BABY-UNIT

Room: 0.7

Workshop by Annebel Depoorter

Raising children is an intense job with a lot of responsibility. As parents we often tend to get overwhelmed by our to do’s and (parental) stress. This prevents us from being truly present with our children. In these moments we seem to be parenting on autopilot and often respond emotionally. When struggling with mental health issues emotion regulation is even more difficult, which in turn can lead to a lesser degree of sensitive responsiveness and a lesser bond with the child.

Mindful Parenting (Bögels & Restifo, 2013) is an ongoing process in which we try to approach each moment with a beginner’s mind, with an emphasis on moments where parenthood plays a central part. It teaches parents to truly connect with themselves and their children as well as mindfully paying attention to the interactions between parent and child.

In this workshop we’ll firstly attempt to give insight into how we’ve adapted Mindful Parenting to the needs and the reality of mothers with postpartum psychiatric problems and their infants. Secondly, we’ll let you get acquainted with the specific techniques that are used. And lastly, we’ll discuss why mindful parenting could be beneficial when working with mothers with mental health problems.

Room: 0.6

Workshop by Prabha Chandra - National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences 

Mentoring of women mental health professionals in early and mid career is imperative to bridge the gender disparity in leadership positions. This workshop will attempt to facilitate better planning of one’s professional milestones and develop skills and competencies necessary to take on leadership positions. The workshop will aim to inspire and encourage potential women leaders to take up leadership roles in finding solutions to their country’s mental health problems in various settings including the NGO sector, clinical and community based work and academic settings.. The Workshop will aim to enable participants to effectively use professional skills, recognise their innate strengths, develop potential for growth, seek for opportunities to evolve and also lead by example.

Participatory learning will include

  1. inclusive leadership
  2. women supporting women and encouraging diversity
  3. the role of professional societies like the IAWMH, WPA and RCPsych in enhancing leadership among women and
  4. overcoming challenges of multiple roles and discrimination.

Through examples such as the Fellows Leadership and Development program as well as the WIPSIG (Women in Psychiatry, Special Interest Group) in the RCPsych, UK and the early career leadership programs of the WPA, we will learn from the past WPA president, Prof. Helen Herrman and the Registrar of the RCPsych, Dr. Trudi Senivaratne, as well as from Dr. Prabha Chandra, President Elect, IAWMH. Unique challenges faced by women from minority groups taking on leadership roles and needs of early and middle career women will be discussed by Dr. Ruksheda Syeda.

CANCELLED: D3.S15. WORKSHOP: HOW TO IMPLEMENT A SUCCESSFUL PERINATAL MOOD AND ANXIETY DISORDERS (PMAD) SCREENING PROGRAM?

Room: 0.7

Workshop by Rena Bina

Educational Objective: Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMAD) effect around 20% of pregnant and postpartum women, with detrimental long-term effects on mother and baby. Although PMAD is a treatable condition, many women are not diagnosed and do not turn for help. Routine screening has been found to raise rates of detection; however, many countries have not yet implemented PMAD screening programs, and in those which have implemented, not all women comply and honestly reveal their feelings. In order to successfully implement a screening program, several elements should be considered, e.g., screening protocol, preparedness of healthcare service providers to screen, and women’s acceptability of the program. Purpose: This workshop will offer in-depth understanding of how to implement an optimal PMAD screening program and practical tools for successful implementation. Content of workshop: This hands-on workshop, which is based on the presenters’ extensive research and clinical experience in the field of screening and treating women with PMAD, will provide participants with:

1. Practical tools for implementing a screening program

2. Recommendations for a successful implementation, e.g., knowledge regarding barriers and facilitators to a successful implementation from both women’s and healthcare providers’ points of view; considering program acceptability and preparedness to implement

3. Recommendations regarding the importance of training the screeners and providing ongoing consultation, including factors to include in such training and consultation.

4. Practical tools for assessing screening program acceptability

5. Examples of existing screening programs. i.e., a face-to-face screening program and an online screening program implemented in Israel

D3.S16. WOMEN Inc. - Mental health of girls: which factors cause sex- and gender differences in young people and how can interventions help?

Room: 0.10

Speakers: Lisa Grooters, dr. Margreet de Looze, dr. Gonneke Stevens, prof. dr. Marrie Bekker

PROGRAM ALLIANCE – WOMEN Inc. x Dutch Society for Gender and Health

Girls report emotional problems almost twice as often as boys do. Also, they more often have psychosomatic problems and report a significantly lower life satisfaction. More in particular gender differences between boys and girls exist , when it comes to mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders and autism. Following the latest results from the HBSC study (2022) on mental health trends among young people, the documentary 'Thirteen' by Lisa Grooters and Marrie Bekker’s work on gender, mental health, and autonomy enhancing treatment (AET), we will discuss the sociocultural factors that may underlie these sex and gender differences in mental health.

Film maker Lisa Grooters will talk about her personal experiences with mental healthcare and what she has tried to capture with her documentary. Researchers Margreet de Looze and Gonneke Stevens will talk more about the newest results from the HBSC study and their implications in the field. Marrie Bekker will present important sex and gender differences in psychopathology and the gender-related role of autonomy-connectedness therein. Together with all of them, we will discuss how certain interventions can diminish and prevent gender differences in mental health among young people.

In this short course, attendees will have the basics of IPT. They will be able to help women in the perinatal period to deal with depressive symptoms and will be able to walk them through three areas: greif, dispute and/or transition.

Room: 0.7

Workshop by:

Alexis Palfreyman - University College London
Sharli PaphitisKing’s College London

The Violence and Mental Health in South Asia (VAMHSA) consortium has developed a package of care to improve the mental health of survivors of Violence Against Women (VAW) in India, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan. Reductions in prevalence and severity of common mental disorders are targeted. Alongside psychological therapies, a range of necessary non-clinical responses are included to address complex needs beyond the intrapsychic.

This workshop explores the triumphs and trials of developing provider resources for the improvement of mental health of survivors of VAW in South Asia. Drawing on multi-year syntheses of new and existing research on ‘what works’, we address the advantages and challenges of reconciling global best practice evidence with local realities of what women want and providers can offer from one low-resource context. We invite participants to consider aspirational and acceptable care from both global and local perspectives, and to apply critical and practical reflection skills, through a series of activities, to explore possibilities for developing care packages or similar in their own contexts.

Room: 0.6

Workshop by Francia Ivonne Campos Chinchilla
with contributions from Natalia Semenova & Unaiza Niaz

Women are still experiencing a glass ceiling regarding their access to senior management in many organizations. The typical pattern of staff distribution forms a gender pyramid, with women dominating lower positions and becoming increasingly absent through the hierarchy. In this workshop, Unaiza Niaz from Pakistan, Francia Ivonne Campos Chinchilla from Colombia/Japan, and Natalia Semenova from Russia will explore women’s leadership and empowerment strategies, using different examples. Unaiza Niaz will discuss strategies to promote women’s leadership in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. Francia Ivonne Campos Chinchilla will present experiences of empowerment strategies and promotion of mental wellbeing, among women from immigrant and/or vulnerable communities in Japan and Colombia during the recent years. Natalia Semenova will talk of role models – women in psychiatry whose work is influential throughout Russia and beyond; these examples will be illustrated and contextualized within their biographical, social, and political context in each region. The session will be followed by a discussion on the socio-cultural context of women’s leadership – to highlight commonalities and differences in the most significant career barriers for women in psychiatry, health care, politics, other fields among the communities, some of the difficulties we encountered, what we learned from the experience. There will also be a discussion of short, medium, and long-term change interventions.
