Providing relationship and strength based mentorship has been at the core of the FASD programs at Catholic Social Services since First Steps opened its doors in 1999 and continues today in all four programs. In addition to providing information about the programs offered, this presentation will utilize our knowledge of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder to describe practical strategies used to support clients, whether they are living with FASD themselves or caring for individuals who are impacted.
Presenters will discuss mentoring both youth and adults and address the strengths and challenges of implementing these strategies using real world examples from their experience working in their respective programs and serving this particular population. Managing transitions for youth moving into adult services and adults moving between services will be given special attention.
