Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) is a permanent, lifelong disability caused by exposure to alcohol during pregnancy. The affected child often presents with a bewildering complexity of symptoms and behaviours many of which will only present at school age, when the alcohol in pregnancy has been forgotten or is considered irrelevant.
This workshop will raise awareness of the effects of parenatal exposure to alcohol and how we can best manage presenting behaviours for the best outcomes for the child. You will learn what FAS is and how to work with children and families effected by FAS.

Hi ! How are you?
There seems to be a misconception around 'helping people' and a tendency to move towards specific training that is overly complicated, sometimes daunting and often ends up sitting on the 'shelf' - The Healthy Conversation Skills training aims to de-mystify the art of 'giving help' and build confidence in everyone.
This 3 hour, fully interactive virtual training is designed to encourage and support the philosophy behind Making Every Contact Count (MECC) with added peer support, networking opportunities and a desire to implement what they learn in their daily lives
We all have a shared responsibility to be healthy in the conversations we have with our residents/customers and each other. We need to invest time in the development of our skills now while there is a collective consideration of health and inequality made so evident in the current pandemic.
If people are empowered to be proactive and opportunistic in their approach to helping others with more complex issues like mental health and sexual health: they will need to be confident in having a basic conversation; using reflection, open discovery questions and a person centred, asset based approach.Essential Information
