Dr. Haner is a clinical forensic psychologist at the London Family Court Clinic where she works with children, adolescents, adults, & families. Her special interests in FASD arose from working with young people involved in the court system & learning about the over-representation of people with FASD therein. Dr. Haner is a co-facilitator of the FASD caregiver support group in London (a shared undertaking of LFCC, Merrymount, & Ways). She takes a healthy-relationships focus in all her work, including a range of treatment, consultation, training, & assessment services – including FASD assessments according to the 2016 Canadian Guidelines. She also has an elder relative with FASD who she loves very much.

When you’re raising kids and youth with FASD, mental health matters.

In this live webinar, join Joyce Hamelin, Parent Liaison with Adopt4Life and FASD Coordinator with the Fetal Alcohol Resource Program, as we explore what you need to know about mental health and FASD, including, ‘How do I respond to a mental health crisis?’ and ‘How can we proactively support our children’s mental health?’.

Join us September 17th, from 8:00–9:30 pm.
