Education and awareness-raising are two of the biggest tools in the fight against FASD. Proactively, the Government of Alberta has arranged a series of learning opportunities for people to access information about FASD and different aspects of its impact on the community. This year, there are a number of different learning opportunities still available and their scope is impressive.
The conversation about Trauma-Informed Practice is emerging in many circles. This approach to practice grew out of practice in mental health circles, but can also be applied to social work and education. The December learning opportunity offered in the GoA series offers information and education about the relationship between trauma and addiction and would be an excellent seminar to attend.
