Understanding Fetal Alcohol and why many of those affected end up in jail| July 30, 2010
It is becoming clearer, that prisons are where a lot of people living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) are ending up. And prison is the last place they should be to find the support and interventions they need.
Stark Raven spoke with Vancouver lawyer, David Boulding about FASD and its relationship to the criminal justice system.
David became an advocate and educator on FASD, after many years of making mistakes working with clients in the system who had FASD. In the past decade he has done dozens of workshops, presentations and written papers on FASD and the law.
