When an individual “fails” in treatment and other services, we often label the person as being non-compliant, unmotivated, or disruptive. However, their behavior may well be due to brain damage caused by prenatal alcohol exposure, which is much more common than most people suspect. Due to this damage, which spans the intellectual spectrum, evidence based practices that rely on verbal interactions and reward and consequence systems are often not successful with them and set them up to fail. The majority of those with an FASD are not accurately diagnosed. As a result, interventions for them in mental health and substance use treatment, vocational services, child welfare, education, and corrections are often ineffective.
There is no charge for this training.
