Dr. Grant

Dr. Grant is concerned primarily with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, particularly the Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP), a home visitation intervention model working since 1991 with high-risk mothers who abuse alcohol and drugs during pregnancy. She has used the PCAP model as a platform from which to examine research questions on perinatal substance abuse, the effects of prenatal exposure to alcohol and drugs, fetal alcohol syndrome, and the challenges of community intervention and prevention with high-risk mothers and their children.

Grant and colleagues have screened over 3,000 postpartum women for alcohol use during pregnancy and examined 15-year pregnancy alcohol use trends. She studies quality of life and psychosocial profiles among young women with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders and has tested a community intervention to improve access to services for these women.  More recently she has examined the role of self-silencing cognitive schemas in depression among PCAP participants. Grant also is involved in training Native American health care providers on fetal alcohol spectrum disorders and intervention/prevention measures.
