If you have not yet decided, please join us at the PSI conference in June in North Carolina. Here are details of the conference. I will be speaking about how postpartum depression impacts a marriage and how couples can renew their connection after the fallout.
Based on the concepts of my newest book, Tokens of Affection, I will discuss specific strategies for moms, dads, and the clinicians who work with them. I would love to see you there! Sign up now.
“Postpartum Depression knocks most couples off their feet and Tokens of Affection serves as a solid ‘grab bar’ for regaining balance. Written with humor, sensitivity, and remarkable insight, Kleiman and Wenzel have created a practical and effective roadmap for couples seeking enhanced connection and stability, not only during the postpartum period but at ANY phase of their lives.” – Margaret Howard, PhD, Director, Postpartum Depression Day Hospital at Women & Infants Hospital; Professor of Psychiatry & Human Behavior (Clinical) and Medicine (Clinical), Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI
“Depression puts stress on a relationship. But with postpartum depression, it’s a ‘double whammy.’ With the perfect blend of clinical experience and scientific knowledge, Karen Kleiman, with Amy Wenzel, has written an outstanding book that will teach you the skills you’ll need to stay focused on your relationship and successfully ride out this trying period of time.” – Jonathan S. Abramowitz, PhD, Professor and Associate Chair of Psychology; University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders
“A welcome resource for marriages touched by postpartum depression, Tokens of Affection provides important information, real-world examples, and practical skills for improving communication, compromise, and marital satisfaction. This is a must-read for couples looking to reconnect and rediscover the strengths in their relationship after postpartum depression.” – Pamela S. Wiegartz, PhD, Director, CBT Services and Training, Brigham and Women’s Hospital; Assistant Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Author, The Pregnancy and Postpartum Anxiety Workbook
“This enlightening book describes the impact of postpartum depression on marriages, never before described so accurately in print. It’s been the missing link to help couples back on their feet, and I’m excited to say we now have it! Based on years of clinical practice and solid research, Kleiman and Wenzel’s practical, easy-to-read guide is a must-read for postpartum couples.” – Shoshana Bennett, PhD, Former President,Postpartum Support International; Clinical Psychologist; Author, Postpartum Depression For Dummies
“Kleiman and Wenzel have eloquently demonstrated how partners can be part of the ‘cure’ for postpartum distress instead of part of the problem. This is a nicely written, must-read for couples, the linchpins of the family.” – Anna R. Brandon, PhD, ABPP, Center for Women’s Mood Disorders, The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
