March 21 FASD Webcast
Join us for this free webcast entitled: Let’s Get Real: the FASD Prevention Conversation Adolescent Project.
“The FASD Prevention Conversation: A Shared Responsibility,” is a province wide initiative funded by the FASD Cross-Ministry Committee. The project focuses on the power of relationships by fostering brief, non-judgmental conversations to inspire change related to alcohol use during pregnancy.
The FASD Prevention Conversation originally targeted adults and was well received in Alberta communities. The Adolescent Project is bringing the key messaging to young people.
Debbie and Megan will:
- Provide a brief overview of the intent, content and proposed delivery of “Let’s Get Real” strategies to reach youth and young adults with prevention messaging.
- Detail new resources available for teachers, youth group leaders, and others who mentor young people and want to provide positive FASD prevention messaging.
- Explain how local network facilitators can provide mentors with training and materials adaptable to make the program appropriate for a variety of age groups, developmental stages and settings.
This webinar will be of interest to persons directly affected by FASD and anyone else supporting persons with FASD.
