1. Group Interpersonal Psychotherapy for depression (the most validated psychotherapy in the pregnant and postpartum population).
2. Group Mindfulness and Effective Communication in Relationships - based on the work of Dr. Marsha Linehan (Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation, and Distress Tolerance skills), Dr. Marshall Rosenberg (Nonviolent Communication), and Dr. Don Miguel Ruiz (The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom [A Toltec Wisdom Book]).
