Demystifying FASD Workshop for Social Service Providers

The February workshop has been cancelled. 

Do you find yourself wondering …

Girl with counselor
Training for Social Service Providers
  • 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 FAS prevalence rates provided by the CDC of 1 in 20 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). Double ARC has a multi-disciplinary FAS  Diagnostic Team to help.

This training will help you understand FASD. We will discuss cause, prevalence and behavioral presentation of FASD and will introduce basic strategies.  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.

When:    TBD From 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Where:   Regina Hall on the campus of Lourdes University

 Who:      Social Service Professionals, Education Professionals

 Why:      1 in 20 children may be affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), yet many are never diagnosed
