Nechapanuk CFS Caregivers receive FASD Training with CTRI

Nechapanuk CFS Caregivers – Feb 27, 2020 – FASD with CTRI

Nechapanuk and SFNFCI are working on a disabilities project funded by Indigenous Services Canada.   The intent of the project is to work with First Nations Child and Family Services to identify ways to increase awareness and understanding of disabilities.

On February 27, 2020 Nechapanuk Caregivers attended FASD training with Crisis & Trauma Resource Institute. This one day training was facilitated by Heather Woodward at the Generations Event Center in Nipawin Sk. There were a total of 16 participants. This training was also offered to Nechapanuk CFS Staff on February 27, 2020 and was well received.

The FASD Training offers insight on how to acquire increased knowledge and practical skills to support children, adults, and families living with FASD. During training participants review five pillars for success when supporting individuals with FASD. These include a focus on Strengths, Healthy Relationships, Promoting FASD Self Awareness, Adaptations Strategies, and Team-Based Support. Readers will transfer newfound knowledge about FASD into practical and meaningful ways to try differently, not harder in their support of individuals, families, and communities affected by FASD. CFS Staff will identify best practices to promote self-awareness and resiliency for people affected with FASD with whom they serve and develop individualized and strong support plans that include team-based supports in the workplace.

SFNFCI would like to thank Heather for facilitation, Generations for the hospitality and great service and Nechapanuk Caregivers for participating in the training.
