This neurobehavioral model workshop is for those wanting to learn more about the impact of prenatal alcohol exposure on the brain and how best to support individuals living with differences in cognitive abilities. This training will help participants build a set of tools rooted in the latest neuroscience, which will allow them to be more successful in their support of individuals with a history of trauma, FASD or other neurobehavioral conditions. Eileen believes that kids do well if they can. When we understand how the brain has been impacted by alcohol, we can then reframe challenging behaviours by seeing them as symptoms of brain function, and move from frustration and anxiety to improved outcomes for both the child, and the caregiver.
This workshop is with Eileen Devine, from Oregon, US. Eileen is both a professional who works in the field as well as a parent with lived experience. Eileen has been trained and certified in the neurobehavioural model, as developed by Diane Malbin. For more information about Eileen, you can visit her website.
