Adolescent Violence in the Home in Context: Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

In this webinar, we hear from Professor Anita Gibbs, from the University of Otago, New Zealand. 

Professor Gibbs shared some of her recent academic research on this topic, and her experience being the adoptive mother of two young people with FASD and additional neurodivergent dis/abilities. Audience members were particularly appreciative to hear of her lived experience and strategies for coping with violent outbursts and meltdowns.  

The webinar covers: 

  • Definitions and primary issues of FASD, including impact on executive, social and adaptive functioning 
  • Secondary challenges and co-occurring issues  
  • Information about clinical assessment, including issues of misidentification 
  • Impacts on caregivers and implications for OoHC placements 
  • Strategies for carers to deal with outbursts 

    Presented by The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare
