Fundamentals of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

 

The past 20 years have seen an explosion of information about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). Unfortunately, those who do not know the basics about FASD may not realize the opportunity to reduce the burden of FASD for those affected or work towards the prevention of FASD. This course gives you key information about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs) and its commonly associated complications, along with tools for prevention. This course is suitable for mental health professionals and nursing professionals at all levels. You will learn ways to identify common symptoms and the benefits of proper diagnosis and treatment of those who have an FASD. Strengths and difficulties for these individuals are emphasized to help you better recognize when someone you work with has an FASD. Finally, you will learn ways that you can raise awareness for these disorders, which can ultimately result in proper treatment and prevention of FASDs along with some valuable resources. You will have a chance to review what you have learned through a series of interactive exercises and vignettes.
