Are you expecting?  Recently added a baby to your family?  Join us for a discussion of your new identity and role as a first-time parent (or second or third time…).  This supportive exploration of the “psychological birth of the parent” will: 
•    Address common concerns and worries during the transition to parenthood,
•    Provide tools and insight for coping,
•    Describe when and how to seek support for yourself, and 
•    Introduce recent neuroscience on parent and baby brain development.  

Presenter: Catherine Monk, PhD, is the inaugural Diana Vagelos Professor of Women’s Mental Health in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Professor of Medical Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons.  Dr. Monk is also the founding director of Women’s Mental Health @Ob/Gyn.  She established and oversees the Perinatal Pathways Laboratory.
