Trauma-informed Care: Where does FASD fit in?
This advanced workshop is for service providers who already use a trauma-informed approach to service. Participants will learn why FASD and trauma are often fellow travelers. They will be invited to reflect on how trauma-informed practice and FASD-informed approaches are already aligned and where trauma-informed care can be adapted and refined to benefit those with FASD.
This workshop will help participants:
- Understand the relationship between adverse childhood experiences and FASD.
- Identify specific trauma responses/adaptions among children and youth with FASD.
- Compare and contrast current practices in trauma-informed care and FASD-informed supports and services.
- Find opportunities to better support their clients with FASD within a trauma-informed framework.
