Dear friends!
Welcome to EUFASD 2022! in the charming town of Arendal in Southern Norway! The first Regional Competence Center for children with prenatal alcohol/drug exposure in the Nordic countries is proud to host this exciting cutting-edge conference for the first time in Norway.

The conference will bring together clinicians, academics, educators, non-governmental organisations and charities, legislators and politicians, lawyers and individuals involved in the criminal justice system, birth and adoptive families together with individuals who themselves have FASD. The aim is to increase knowledge and awareness, and to help promote the understanding of FASD in Norway, the Nordic countries, Europe and internationally. The conference will cover a wide range of topics including prevention, prevalence / epidemiology, social determinants, biomarkers, epigenetics, diagnosis, psychological profiles, secondary disorders/ comorbidity, intervention, clinical management and care, behavioral management, education, family support, and legal & ethical issues. The list is not final and may grow depending on submitted abstracts.

Application is being made to the Norwegian Medical Association and The Norwegian Psychological Association (NPF) for both the conference activity and the pre-conference training day for approval for CPD in accordance with the current Norwegian CPD Guidelines.
