Workshop Title: Abortion, Stigma and Mental Health 


Workshop Description:

This workshop is an introduction to abortion, as it relates to mental health and counseling. In this workshop we will take a broad look at abortion statistics and procedures. Information will be provided on patient demographics and barriers to healthcare. Research on both stigma and post abortion mental health outcome data will be discussed. We will review counseling techniques for both wanted and unwanted pregnancies. By the end of this workshop, clinicians will have a better understanding of the physical and emotional experience of abortion, as well as their own personal bias. Finally, resources will be provided to assist clinicians in abortion work.  (Introductory)
