Stigma in FASD: Implications for FASD Across the Lifespan and Prevention

Stigma can influence prevention, diagnosis and intervention in FASD. This can only be changed through open discussions and examining beliefs as well as understanding:

  • Issues around current prevention awareness campaigns
  • The stigma preventing disclosure of alcohol history and preventing early diagnosis and access to intervention
  • The over representation of FASD in certain groups
  • How stigma about FASD may lead to discrimination and blunting of personal potential

This webcast will be of interest to anyone working with persons with FASD, health care workers, or caregivers.
