Help Karen Kleiman with her Important Research

Karen Kleiman is a tireless author, clinician, trainer, and advocate for advancements in ppmd research and treatment. I cannot say enough good things about the work she does. If you've had a baby in the past year, please consider participating in her latest research project:

As many of you know, I have been collaborating with a research team at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine who have expertise in postpartum distress and scale design. We have performed an initial statistical analysis on a new postpartum distress scale.

At this stage, we would like to re-test our proposed scale items, along with established measures, such as the Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale (EPDS).

We need approximately 100 postpartum women (with babies up to 12-months old) to complete this phase of the study. I am hoping that you will post a link to the questionnaire, which is offered online, for your members or your clients, to help us further validate this measure.

No problem, Karen! Please click on this link to be directed to her survey.
