Dufferin Wellington FASD 3rd Annual Conference: Understanding and Supporting Mental Health and Mental Wellness

Language: English
Date: May 19, 2022 – 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Location: Online
Cost: $10 for parents/caregivers, $40 for professionals

Description: Throughout this conference, we will explore the concept of mental health as it pertains to individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, and expand this to encompass mental wellness. Research and practical considerations will be incorporated and attendees will be encouraged to consider ways in which they may leverage their existing skill sets and collaborative networks, to support wellness.

We will discuss why typical approaches are not effective and how we can modify practices such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), group therapy, and motivational interviewing based on our understanding of FASD and the impact on brain functioning.
