When you’re raising kids and youth with FASD, mental health matters. Young people with FASD frequently have experienced early developmental trauma, and often struggle with ongoing anxiety and depression. As parents and caregivers, we need to know how to respond positively to our children’s mental health struggles, and how to help our loved ones build proactive skills and strengths that support their mental health. 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.

Becoming a Behavioural Detective: Understanding and Supporting Complex Behaviour

Language: English
Location: Kanata Recreation Complex, Ottawa, Ontario
Cost: $150 – $175
When: September 6, 2019 | 9am–4pm
Click here for more info

This one-day workshop with Kim Barthel will provide an understanding of the integrated neurobiology of sensory processing and emotional/relational problems
that result in “challenging behaviour”.

Participants will be invited to forevermore become behavioural detectives, using clinical reasoning, to look deeper than the surface. By seeking to understand why people do the things we do, from a myriad of perspectives, we allow compassion into the equation. This alone changes the brain – but the mindset of clinical curiosity supports treatment strategies at home, at school and in all levels of relationships.
