Fetal Effects of Maternal/Paternal Alcohol and Other Drug Use: Abstracts of Selected Articles.
Laws, Kathy; And Others
This publication includes abstracts of 45 articles published in recent years on the effects of maternal and paternal alcohol and other drug use on the fetus; prevention and intervention programs; and teaching strategies to be used with prenatally drug-exposed children. While not an exhaustive list of available research on these topics, this review of current literature indicates that further research needs to address topics that include: (1) developing reliable drug screening systems; (2) making treatment services available to drug-using women; (3) developing intervention programs for drug-exposed infants; (4) improving drug education and prevention programs in schools; (5) educating women of child-bearing age about the dangers of alcohol and drug use; and (6) developing training programs for professionals, parents, and educators in the care of alcohol- and drug-exposed children. Section 1 of this collection contains single-page abstracts of the 45 research articles. Each article is indexed by a set of keywords appropriate to its content. Section 2 is a subject index of the keywords. Section 3 is a reference list of the articles abstracted. Section 4 is a glossary of terms. (BC)
