Education for Mental Health Professionals

Mental Health Professionals experience significant challenges when working in reproductive medicine. The competence required to practice in this area does not carry over from other mental health care settings. 

Training modules developed by ASRM and its Mental Health Professional Group (MHPG) teach treatment interventions that take into consideration the scientific, medical, ethical, and psychological aspects of infertility treatments, which must be adapted specifically for infertility patients. 

Improve your practice with self-directed modules that enhance your knowledge of reproductive care while expanding your understanding of the ethical issues surrounding reproductive health and family building.*
