Health Care Professionals Training (Part 1) – Webinar
Using the Intersection of Genetics, Prenatal Drug/Alcohol Exposure, and Toxic Traumatic Stress to Develop Resilient, Trauma-informed Communities
Part 1 will review the neurodevelopmental/neurobehavioral impact of genetics/epigenetics, prenatal drug/alcohol exposure, and toxic traumatic stress, both individually and in combination, and will outline an inclusive conceptual model that employs trauma/FASD screening in multiple settings to join all stakeholders and facilitates creative collaboration to ultimately design customized local infrastructure that will ensure each child will receive appropriate trauma/FASD assessment and resiliency-based intervention.
