1174d – Webinar – FASD and Juvenile Justice System
(January 2018) In this 90-minute presentation, you can expect to learn about the benefits of routine screening for FASD in criminal justice and legal settings and to acquire knowledge about the deficits commonly caused by FASD. Specifically, we will focus on how FASD may impact confabulation, competency, diminished capacity, disposition/sentencing, false confessions, sexually inappropriate behaviors, suggestibility, trial right deficits, and the increased risk of victimization during confinement. Relevant research findings will be presented throughout the workshop.
