Competency 3: Treatment Strategies for Working with Clients with an FASD

Adults

Case manager talking with a couple about discharge and ongoing services

Transitional Planning and Case Management

Part of the counselor’s role is to prepare for discharge of the client from your service. This involves working to establish a network of community resources and providers of service who will continue to provide support and advocacy when your role is complete. Providing these supports with education about FASD and this person’s unique patterns of behavior is an important part of successful transitioning.

Locating a long-term mentor within the person’s sphere of relationships can be another way to support the transition to the person’s own community. Providing tips and strategies for things that have worked well with the person can enable the mentor to provide support in the future.4
