Pain as experienced by individuals with FASD is under-researched and frequently misunderstood and under-recognized in the medical community.
We are taking a short hiatus from our CanFASD Webinar Series for the month of October as we prepare for the many amazing virtual conferences that we will be attending.
Reaching women in childbearing years and their support networks through respectful conversations about alcohol is key to FASD prevention.
Self-regulation is important in our daily lives, but individuals with FASD often experience challenges with self-regulation. In this webinar, Dr. Jacqueline Pei will explain the concept of self-regulation and how it relates to individuals with FASD. She will provide examples of strategies to improve self-regulation as well as describe the growing number of evidence-based interventions.

Achieving healthy outcomes for individuals with FASD requires working together towards meaningful goals for each individual. Recognizing this need, her and her team of researchers produced an evidence-informed model to help us to identify key needs for all humans – with specific consideration for how existing research can inform our practice.
We’re excited to announce that the 2020 Sterling Clarren Award winner is John Aspler from McGill University! John is completing his doctoral thesis analyzing the discourse surrounding FASD, alcohol, and pregnancy in major Canadian print news sources.
