Register now for CanFASD’s first webinar of 2021: Identifying Best Practices for FASD Prevention, Intervention, and Support! This 60-minute webinar with CanFASD Researcher, Lindsay Wolfson, will be held on January 29, 2021, at 2:00pm EST.
More and more online opportunities for professional development are popping up in our increasingly virtual environment. Although there are lots of courses out there for specific professions, there are very few online learning opportunities for the range of professionals who work with people with FASD and women who are at risk of having a child with FASD. CanFASD has a number of online courses available to support professionals and community members who are connecting with these populations. And we’re adding a new course to the roster in March 2021!
Best Practices for Prevention, Intervention and Support is our newest online learning course (available Spring 2021), designed for professionals working in the fields of substance use, mental health, housing, employment, justice, and more. This webinar will provide an overview of the four modules provided in this course. It will also highlight some of the key tools and resources included in the modules to support individuals who have or are at risk of having a child with FASD and/or may have FASD themselves.
The webinar key takeaways include:
- Bring attention to the importance of having multidisciplinary content available for a range of health and social service providers who support women of childbearing years who use alcohol and individuals with FASD;
- Explore existing and promising practices across FASD prevention, intervention, and support; and,
- Identify tools and resources that can support a range of health and social service providers in better supporting individuals with FASD or those at risk of alcohol use in pregnancy.
Registration for this webinar is open until January 29, 2021. Spaces are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
