The Art of Social Change: Preventing Misinformation About Marijuana and Alcohol Use in Pregnancy

How do we change society's perception of the dangers of alcohol and marijuana use in pregnancy? Such use continues to be a significant factor in the morbidity and mortality associated with pregnancy and the newborn, and it is almost guaranteed that current circumstances will translate into increasing behavioral and learning difficulties for children in the classroom and in the home. However, it is within our capabilities to prevent these problems and enhance children's long-term developmental trajectory through community-based and holistic approaches. This program will present the basic science of marijuana's and alcohol's impact on the developing fetal brain and the resulting behavior in childhood, will explore strategies for primary and secondary prevention grounded in four basic principles of ethical prevention, and examine population-based and individual prevention strategies that have the potential to change behavior at a societal and a personal level.  ​

At the completion of this session, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe changes in the function and structure of the developing fetal brain caused by prenatal exposure to marijuana and alcohol.
  2. Name four principles of ethical prevention.
  3. List four important theories that can guide communication with the public.
  4. Explain four steps through which individuals learn new behaviors.
