Notice of Free FASD Training
Posted on: 10-12-2012
By: Brad Powell

There is a free 1-day training on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) now available year-round. This is designed for working health care and mental health care professionals, and for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Training takes place at the University of Washington. Come spend a day observing in our FASD diagnostic clinic, or have your students or staff benefit from this training experience. Thousands of trainees have attended to date. This can be an in-service opportunity, a class assignment, an independent study experience, or a volunteer experience. Earn two CEU credits. This is a one-day, all-day Friday commitment. We have about 40 Fridays a year in which clinics take place, including during the summer.

For detailed information see our attached brochure. This is an informative experience that trainees uniformly like and leave feeling well-informed. Please email Brent Spencer, the Clinic coordinator, at fasdclin@uw.edu, if you have questions or would like to sign up for the training. Feel free to connect with Heather Carmichael Olson, Ph.D., (member of the University of Washington faculty and FASD diagnostic team), at quiddity@uw.edu, if you are an instructor and want to brainstorm how this might fit into your curriculum. Teachers can construct test questions from the pre-reading material they receive. An FASD clinic visit is a compelling experience for trainees. We look forward to seeing you!
