Course Description

Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and the Criminal Justice System This course assumes prior knowledge of FASD together with the primary and secondary disabilities caused by FASD. We will use only the term FASD throughout this course, but the student should also consider ARND and ARBD as being associated problems. Between these three terms there will be a range of effects including physical, mental, behavioural and learning difficulties, the majority of which will have lifelong implications to the individual.

The course covers the secondary behaviours associated with FASD which may cause the individual to be more likely to break the law more frequently than someone unaffected by FASD. Assisting an individual with FASD through the court and trial procedures and understanding the requirements that need to be in place for the successful management of FASD within the court system.

The course aims to: Provide a nationally accredited certificated course covering a wide range of issues associated with alcohol use during pregnancy and the predisposition to criminal behaviour of an individual with FASD. Provide a flexible learning opportunity that is accessible to a wide range of learners Provide the student with knowledge and understanding that can be applied by those who either personally, voluntary or professionally have a special interest in this field. Specific objectives are listed as Learning Outcomes at the start of each of the three Modules of the course.

These Learning Outcomes cover areas related to: How FASD lends itself to a predisposition of criminal behaviour How to assist an individual with FASD through the court and trial procedures Understand the requirements that need to be in place for the successful management of FASD within the court system.

Our aim is to provide you with the best deal available, therefore registration fee, certification fee and full tutor support is included in the course price for you.
