The Marcé Society's Resource Curriculum, the Resource Pack has Four Units that are designed for self-study but uniquely suitable for group work. Unit One is called "Emotions and Feelings", Unit Two is "Psychiatric Illnesses and Emotional Disorders, Unit Three is "Skills and Attitudes" and Unit Four is "In Practice". During this workshop we divided into groups and worked on selected activities from Unit One. It was fascinating to listen to the conversation about "Rituals that mark the transition to parenthood" from diverse perspectives. The content and format of the Marcé Resource Pack provides the basis of excellence in caring for childbearing women and their families. The Marcé Society Resource Pack can be utilized in a group setting or for individual training.
