Alcohol and Pregnancy Brief Intervention Guides
The resources in this section were developed to support service providers to successfully engage with women and their partners on alcohol use, pregnancy, and prevention of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). While many aspects of FASD prevention are interconnected, current evidence and practice issues have been synthesized into eight topics that allow service providers to explore issues from different perspectives and that are most relevant to their own practice.
Each topic area includes: a brief overview of recent research findings; practical strategies for addressing alcohol issues with women; online resources for further reading and for sharing with women and their supports; reflection and discussion questions; and referral information for British Columbia.
