Competency 3: Treatment Strategies for Working with Clients with an FASD
Transitional Planning and
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
