Research suggests that as many as 60 percent of adolescents and adults with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) come into contact with the criminal justice system. FASD is a prenatal brain injury that can make understanding and complying with probation conditions difficult, putting this population at higher risk for recidivism. Learn effective supervision strategies to improve supervision outcomes, prevent crime, and reduce recidivism. During the webinar, participants will:
- Examine the challenges that FASD probationers have in meeting probation requirements;
- Explore reasons why probationers with FASD have a tendency to recidivate;
- Examine effective supervision and recidivism reduction strategies for this population; and
- Obtain valuable resources and tools to assist you in supporting successful outcomes for probationers with FASD.
