This scholarship fund has been established to honor Dr. Chamberlain and further his desire to widely share information about pre and perinatal psychology. Scholarship funds will be used to assist deserving individuals with congress registration or with tuition for the APPPAH Pre and Perinatal Educator Certificate program.
APPPAH’s international congresses attract people from around the world and could attract more of those who work with underserved populations if scholarships were available.
APPPAH’s Pre and Perinatal Educator Certificate has been developed to provide a basic education, including history, ethics, and principles, in pre and perinatal psychology and enable those who earn the certificate to share this information with others in various learning environments. Here are two examples recent inquiries about this program.
