Abstract Share this page

This study examined the impact of implementation of a structured 8-session psycho-educational and cognitive behavioural therapy skills group for postnatal adjustment. Forty-five women identified as experiencing antenatal adjustment problems attended the 8-week group. Participants completed the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale, Beck Anxiety Inventory, and the Maternal Attitudes Questionnaire prior to and after attendance, as well as a feedback form in the final session. Following attendance, participant scores on measures of depression, anxiety, and attitudes to mothering improved significantly. Further research is needed to contrast the group to a control condition and to determine group effects are maintained over time.
