We are looking forward to our first MBC Doula School guest teacher who will be presenting A Safe Passage workshop on September 20 and 21, 2014.
A Safe Passage is an Advanced Practitioner Training program designed to help caregivers gain an understanding of the special needs of women survivors of abuse and learn the skills needed to support them through their pregnancy, labour & childbirth and the early postpartum period. This workshop is delivered from a strengths-based prospective, and honours the strength, courage and resilience of women survivors of abuse. This workshop has been approved for 11 LAMAZE contact hours (which DONA recognizes).
Caregivers who would benefit from this training include doulas, midwives, nurses, social workers, and other health and social services professionals caring for women during the transition to mothering.
Jodi Hall has worked with women through the childbearing year since 1996 and has been employed as a full-time counsellor working with abused women and their children since 2002. For more information about this training, please visit ASP here.
This workshop will comprise one component of the MBC Doula School certification program.
The price for this two day workshop is $250 for the public and $175 for MBC members or students. To register, please visit our registration page here.
As always, flexible payment plans are available and one scholarship will be offered.
