De-mystifying FASD: 2-Day Workshop

Posted Apr 6th, 2016 by Sr. Mary Sartor  Category: Education, Events


Do you find yourself wondering…

Why does this client not improve?

Why can she give me the right answers but can’t carry them out?

Is something else going on besides ADHD, ODD, and OCD in this one client?

At 18, why is he acting like a 10-year-old?

With the latest prevalence rates of 1 in 20-30 children being born from an alcohol-exposed pregnancy, perhaps your client’s behaviors are due to the diffuse brain damage caused by prenatal alcohol exposure. They might have FASD (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders).

This two-part training will help social service professionals understand Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). Implications for prevention, screening techniques, and learn strategies.

PART I: Will discuss cause, prevalence and behavioral presentation of FASD and will introduce basic strategies.

PART II: Double ARC staff will assist participants in creating strategies and applying knowledge to their practice. Screening and brief interventions will be presented as a means of preventing FASD. A video by Dr. Sterling Clarren, one of the world’s leading researchers in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders will also be presented. Dr. Clarren trained Double ARC’S multi-disciplinary FAS Diagnostic Team.

PART I: Friday, April 15, 2016 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

PART II: Friday, April 29, 2016 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
