  • Grounding Trauma - Challenging Paradigms & Innovative Solutions

    April 17-18, 2018

    Within the health and helping field we aim to explore what isn’t working and why in a detailed exploratory way. What are our fears? What stifles progress? Why are some organizations proactive and dynamic while others are not. We will be controversial and seek to address ways to change the culture of support/trauma, review language and barriers, assess various approaches, research programs and other ideas that need to be dissected and repaired.

  • 8th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD

    April 18-21, 2018

    Although there have been thousands of published articles in FASD in general, there has been limited research specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD or on individuals across the lifespan. As those individuals diagnosed with FASD continue to age, the “need to know” across a broad spectrum of areas is becoming critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions. This interactive 2018 conference will provide an opportunity to be at the forefront of addressing these issues. We will welcome a diverse group of professionals, researchers, students, families, and individuals with FASD. We have a Call for Abstracts available: http://interprofessional.ubc.ca/initiatives/adults2018/abstracts/

    Location:

    April 18-21, 2018, The Hyatt Regency Vancouver, 655 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada,
