Preventing the Use of Marijuana: Focus on Women and Pregnancy: The prevention of marijuana use among pregnant women is essential for mitigating risk and adverse health consequences that may arise during pregnancy for the expectant mother and her developing offspring. The clinical presentation of such use is often-times complex.  Frequently, there are additional factors inclusive of co-occurring substance use, stress, age, mental health, and poor prenatal care that may have the concomitant effect of complicating the clinical approach to care. Moreover, these factors are resultant in the same pregnancy outcomes that are evidenced with sole marijuana use, sans the additional complicating factors. Empirically supported practices and strategies for substance use prevention when working with this population are also considered in this course.

Course Objectives:

  1. Identify risk factors associated with marijuana use during pregnancy for both the expectant mother and her offspring, as well as the risks associated with postpartum marijuana use
  2. Assess research findings pertaining to the prevention of substance misuse (including alcohol and tobacco) among pregnant and postpartum women
  3. Recognize demographic-specific factors that are linked to marijuana use outcomes
  4. Describe the core elements and outcomes of 6 programs that use evidence-based practices to prevent substance use by pregnant and postpartum women
  5. List key considerations of empirically supported prevention practices and related programmatic implementation
  6. Determine proper guidelines for selecting, implementing, and evaluating marijuana use prevention programs among pregnant women, postpartum women, and women of child-bearing age
