Alcohol use during pregnancy is associated with an elevated risk of adverse birth outcomes, including fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). FASD is an umbrella term that describes the range of physical, neurobehavioral, and developmental effects that can occur in an individual who was exposed to alcohol before birth. Fortunately, FASDs are completely preventable if a developing baby is not exposed to alcohol before birth. This webinar will assist clinical social workers in discussing alcohol use with women of reproductive age and delivering and implementing evidence-based interventions to prevent alcohol-exposed pregnancies. This webinar is useful for clinical social workers who work with women in health care, substance abuse, and correctional settings.
