OUR PROFESSIONAL ADVISORY BOARD: Ann P. Streissguth, Ph.D.
Crime Times is pleased to introduce in this issue Dr. Ann Streissguth, a member of our highly distinguished Professional Advisory Board.
ANN P. STREISSGUTH, Ph.D., is the Director of the Fetal Alcohol and Drug Unit at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle. The unit conducts research on fetal alcohol and drug effects across the life span, disseminates information on fetal alcohol and drug effects, provides consultation for individuals suffering from disabilities due to prenatal alcohol exposure, and offers training on the effects of teratogens (substances that damage the fetus) on human behavior.
Streissguth has perhaps done more than any other researcher to bring the dangers of prenatal exposure to alcohol, cocaine, and other drugs to the attention of professionals and the public.
...
The pioneering studies of Streissguth and colleagues have provided the first in-depth information about the long-term behavioral deficits of individuals with FAS (See Crime Times, Vol. 1, No. 1/2, Page 3 and Crime Times, Vol. 3, No. 1, Page 5) have confirmed the dangers of even "social" drinking during pregnancy; and have educated professionals about the effects of prenatal use of drugs ranging from cocaine to aspirin. In addition, Streissguth is noted for her outreach and assistance to thousands of children with FAS, and to families coping with this disorder.

One of these experts is CrimeTimes Professional Advisory Board member Ann Streissguth, whose pioneering research played a huge role in revealing the link between pregnant women's drinking and the costs to their children in the form of brain damage, learning disabilities, disruptive behavior, criminality, and ruined lives.

Translating this knowledge into action, Streissguth and colleague Ruth Little formed the Seattle Pregnancy and Health Program, a project combining public education and active intervention for at-risk pregnant women.
...
Dr. Streissguth and her colleagues are now involved in another project, the Parent-Child Assistance Program, which helps drug- or alcohol-abusing mothers break their addictions, protecting their future children from the ravages of prenatal alcohol or drug exposure. The direct result of these efforts: fewer infants born with irreparable brain damage, and more babies who have the potential for a bright future.
Dr. Walsh, Dr. Streissguth, and others like them are helping to usher in a new era in which we identify and treat-or, even better, prevent-the brain dysfunctions that cause millions of people to become delinquents, criminals, or tragic failures.
