SOS TSAF – Une urgence sociale
Colloque virtuel (bilingue) le 17 septembre 2021 organisé par l’OBNL SafEra
avec la participation financière de l’OPHQ.

Le TSAF est un handicap neurodéveloppemental, souvent invisible, connu à l’international depuis 1975 (ICD-9 : 760.71 F.A.S.) mais tarde à être reconnu au Québec. C’est pourquoi SafEra organise un colloque afin de répondre aux
divers besoins associés au TSAF.

A research project evaluating a virtual Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) series for caregivers of individuals with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD)

ACT seeks to help individuals to struggle less with difficult things in their lives and mindfully connect with things that are most important in a way that is loving and respectful. With an introduction to the concept of mindfulness, ACT does not attempt to directly change or stop unwanted thoughts or feelings, but to develop a new mindful relationship with those experiences that can free a person up to being open, and to take action consistent with what they care about. This is a research project evaluating the benefits of ACT for caregivers.

About the Virtual Series
The virtual ACT intervention is spread over 4 consecutive Wednesday evenings followed by a refresher evening session, held 4 weeks later.

About the Facilitators
Two facilitators are caregivers of a child with FASD and the other facilitator is a health care professional.

Who Should Attend?
Primary caregivers of individuals with FASD.

Dates & Times
Wednesday March 31, April 7, April 14, April 21 & May 19: 7:00pm-9:00pm
Location: Virtually via WebEx
