Santa Barbara Graduate Institute was open for 12 years. Unfortunately, it is no longer open and there are no known higher education programs in Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology in North America. Although there are no longer graduate degree programs, Dr. McCarty and Dr. Glenn, as co-creators of those programs, can offer training and mentoring to support further learning in these areas.
