Abstract
This study used qualitative inquiry guided by phenomenology in effort to make explicit the experiences of three registered psychologists and one registered clinical social worker, who counsel individuals with FASDs. An interview was conducted with each participant and then each interview was analyzed for themes and subthemes. The analysis resulted in three primary themes: Thinking Outside the Box, Finding a Foothold and Finding the Fit Between Tools and The Client. The results of this study indicate that counselling an individual with an FASD is challenging and requires flexibility on the part of the therapist. Finally, the results of this present study will be situated within the literature discussing other noncounselling methods used in working with individuals with an FASD and the literature pertaining to counselling individuals with other disabilities.
