Upcoming Trainings

The Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) offers trainings on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). MOFAS trains professionals like yourself – medical providers, educators, social workers, chemical health workers, caregivers, criminal justice workers, therapists and other social/human service providers. You can serve your clients more effectively by better understanding the physical, behavioral and cognitive challenges faced by people with an FASD and help eliminate the stigma associated with FASD. Register for one of our upcoming trainings.

Cost: $25 (includes CME)
Register online: https://trailblz.info/mofas/EventComplete.aspx?eventid=1771

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.

Part 2: Using the Intersection of Genetics, Prenatal Drug/Alcohol Exposure, and Toxic Traumatic Stress to Develop Resiliency-based Trauma-informed Assessment and Intervention Strategies
Thursday, March 2, 2017 | 11 a.m. – noon (CST)
Cost: $25 (includes CME)
Register online: https://trailblz.info/mofas/EventComplete.aspx?eventid=1772

Part 2 will build on the conceptual model outlined in Part 1. The attendee will be introduced to a customized trauma-informed/FASD-informed assessment conceptual model driven by trauma screen results. This customized assessment drives trauma-informed interdisciplinary interventions, which will be outlined in some detail.
