Topic Support Group: FASD Trying Differently Rather Than Harder Book Club
Join us for a Book Club! The CaRES team leads you through a reading and discussion of “Trying Differently Rather Than Harder: Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders” by Diane Malbin. “Trying Different Rather Than Harder” is a readable, narrative discussion of the neurobehavioral approach to working with children and youth with FASD. The book focuses on understanding behaviors differently through case studies and examples of how FASD impacts everyday life. During four sessions, you will be discussing themes including: adaptions, common challenges, cognitive changes and strategies to address them, working with memory disruptions, and talking about FASD in a supportive informative manner.
The topics covered in this course include Caregiver Skills, Caregiver Support and Information, Chemical Dependency, Child Development, Health and Well-Being, Education, Parenting and Trauma.
This course is not eligible for Social Work CEUs at this time.
