Brief Interventions

Research has shown brief interventions to be very useful in helping pregnant women who drink low to moderate amounts of alcohol reduce their alcohol intake during pregnancy. Brief interventions are cost-effective and can be implemented in a variety of clinical settings. They include four components:
  1. Assessment and direct feedback
  2. Goal setting through establishing contracts
  3. Positive reinforcement
  4. Education through pamphlets and handouts for self-help
