Help for New Moms Coping with Trauma
- SMC is designed as a psychoeducational program for women in the perinatal stages of life, who have a history of childhood maltreatment and other trauma.
- The structure of the SMC program consists of supervisors who are trained and licensed by GFT to oversee tutors who are also trained and licensed to provide the SMC psychoeducational materials (workbook, worksheets, etc.) to mothers eligible for the program.
- GFT’s role is to staff the work of getting SMC out into the world until SMC becomes self-sufficient.
In the US and globally, one in five women has a history of childhood maltreatment (physical, sexual, emotional abuse and/or neglect).
20% of women have PTSD at some point in their lives.
