(en anglais) Loss, Grief, and Resilience

Loss and grief seem to go hand in hand in relation to FASD and this experience deeply impacts the lives of children, youth, adults, families and support networks. Many children become involved in the child protection system early in their lives and this deeply impacts their life course trajectory including later involvement with the justice system in adolescence and adulthood. Mothers experience loss and grief regarding their child’s disability and frequently lose the opportunity to parent often due to active substance use. Beyond diagnosis, FASD is a complex psychosocial/emotional experience that requires ongoing supports to navigate life on a daily basis. Individuals with FASD often experience mental health challenges, poverty and homelessness. FASD often goes unrecognized by many professionals and this contributes to ineffective support, unrealistic expectations, frustration, loss and grief, all of which contribute to higher levels of vulnerability. Individuals and families have cumulative experiences of loss, grief and hurt, particularly when they feel professionals do not understand their experience and the impact of FASD in daily life. Training on FASD and practicing FASD informed care is essential to minimize further marginalization and oppression of individuals and families. Other losses for Individuals living with FASD include being misunderstood, facing challenges in relationships, ever-present stigma and social exclusion. The COVID-19 Pandemic resulted in a loss of supports for individuals living with FASD creating new and unexpected challenges that we will talk about from a personal, professional and parent perspective.

Recognizing this we have produced an evidence informed model to help us to identify key needs for all humans – with specific consideration for how existing literature can inform our practice.

Within this model we present a developmental lifespan perspective, that is enacted within interactive systems, and is strength-based and empowered.

(en anglais) CANCELLED – 9th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD

Langue: Anglais
Lieu: Vancouver
Coût: Disponible lorsque les inscriptions seront ouvertes.
Quand: 22 au 25 avril, 2019
Cliquez ici pour plus d’informations

This event has been cancelled. Please see here for more info.

Although there have been thousands of published articles on FASD, there still remains limited research specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD. As individuals diagnosed with FASD continue to age, the “need to know” across a broad spectrum of areas continues to be critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions.

During this research conference on adolescents and adults with FASD, participants can expect to:

  • Connect the identified needs of community workers, healthcare providers, and families with the research community
  • Recognize emerging research findings and how they might better assist ethical policy and decision making and the development of
    integrated and collaborative approaches across systems
  • Examine practice-based evidence, projects and programs to understand the potential connections to research and potential
    longitudinal studies
  • Engage in knowledge exchange and dialogue through sessions, networking and the direct experience of individuals with FASD and families
