FASD and Sexuality –
Creating clear understanding and safe boundaries

Half day program

The early childhood years are most often the easiest time for parents and caregiver rearing children with FASD. As the years pass, the gap between those with FASD and their chronologically-aged peers widens and the real tough times begin, with the most challenging time of all being adult life.

This session bravely connects current brain research to real life, dares to address the common challenges regarding appropriate social/sexual behaviors facing children with FASD throughout the life stages; and suggests proven strategies for safety and more positive outcomes.

Issues covered in this workshop include:

  • Typical markers that suggest the presence of an FASD
  • The impact of FASD on sexuality
  • Identifying barriers to sexuality but also creating boundaries
  • Specific brain and hormonal differences in many individuals with FASD
  • Therapeutic approaches that work with clients with FASD
