Individuals with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), and their caregivers, report high levels of stress, yet are often excluded from typical mental health and support services. This has been recognized by the Ontario Government’s FASD provincial initiatives of which investment in Family/Caregiver Support Group Project is one priority. In response to this, we have worked with the FASD community to support the development and delivery of support group activities aimed to enhance their overall wellbeing. For this presentation, we will discuss the importance of FASD-informed facilitation, working with parents/caregivers in all aspects of planning, community collaboration and capacity building, mitigating risk, continuous quality improvement, and reducing barriers to service.

We will highlight an initiative that , involved scientists and researchers from Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and the University Health Network working together with Health Nexus and advisors. This group co-delivered a brief caregiver Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) intervention to caregivers of individuals with FASD. The overall goal of this intervention was to improve the mental health and wellbeing of female caregivers of people with FASD. We will discuss our experiences of working alongside caregiver advisors to tailor and deliver an intervention to ensure its relevancy to caregivers of individuals with FASD. We will also discuss the impact of ACT on the stress and wellbeing of caregivers of individuals with FASD, in addition to demonstrating ACT exercises with audience members.

Join us to view the 30 minute Picture This documentary (information below) along with a live discussion panel with the photo voice participants.

In 2007, five women participated in a photo voice project entitled, “Picture This: Life as a Parent of Children with FASD”.  The women used cameras and engaged in group discussion to describe their experiences of parenting children with FASD through pictures and narratives.  The project was transformed into a photo exhibit, podcast and DVD film production.  The film takes real emotions formerly described by intellect or words and turns them into powerful symbols and metaphors.  Participation in the project had a lasting impact on each mother and their relationships with one another.  With support from FASDONE the film was recently translated into Oji-Cree.  On September 16, 2020 we will present the translated video and bring together some of the mothers, as well as the translator, to talk about their experiences.

This event is hosted in partnership with FASDONE Network and the Ontario Network of CAPC/CPNP project

Joignez-vous à Able2 pour une marche de 0,9 km dans le centre-ville d’Ottawa pour attirer l’attention sur le trouble du spectre de l’alcoolisation fœtale.

Plus de 100 personnes, y compris des familles et des amis de personnes atteintes du TSAF, des professionnels de la santé, des soignants, des partenaires de programmes et des représentants de médias locaux se rassembleront le 12 septembre pour attirer l’attention sur le TSAF, réfuter les mythes courants, faire connaître les ressources et les programmes de soutien locaux et apporter de l’espoir en ce qui concerne le diagnostic et l’intervention précoces.

Le TSAF affecte environ 1,5 million de Canadiens. Il n’existe pas de quantité sûre et de moment sécuritaire pour consommer de l’alcool pendant la grossesse. Nous avons tous un rôle à jouer!

In order to implement best practices and improve outcomes for individuals with FASD who experience contact with the criminal justice system there is a need to characterize current experiences and needs, practices, and decision-making in these cases. Dr. McLachlan’s research team will present findings from several recent studies that aim to develop this growing evidence base. We first characterize criminal justice contact experiences among adolescents and adults with FASD using data from the Canadian FASD Database. Second, we review findings from a recently completed study evaluating FASD evidence in a review of published Canadian criminal cases. Third, we describe findings from our research characterizing the FASD knowledge, practice experiences, and training needs among forensic clinicians in Canada and internationally. Finally, we present findings from a systematic review of screening tools and approaches for identifying individuals with FASD, including specifically in justice contexts.

 

This 90-minute presentation will be held on Friday, August 7th, 2020, at 1:00pm EST, and will include a discussion period following the presentation.
