This workshop is designed to gather campus and community leaders to consider the latest evidence-based methods to prevent or reduce high-risk drinking among 17- to 24-year-olds, and to plan ways to both implement these strategies and evaluate their effectiveness. The ultimate goal is to create a coalition of Milwaukee-area colleges, businesses, and service providers to develop programs to deal with this problem.
The schedule includes presentations from nationally known research experts on the topic of young-adult drinking. During lunch, attendees will hear perspectives from campus and community stakeholders. The afternoon will conclude with breakouts addressing cross campus and community/academic partnerships, coalition building and grant writing.
“Integrating Social Norms Marketing and Environmental Management to Reduce Student Alcohol Use”
Dr. DeJong served as director of the U.S. Department of Education’s Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention from 1995–2004, and is principal investigator of the Social Norms Marketing Research Project, a five-year, $4 million study funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. He is also executive director of program research and analysis at Outside the Classroom, Inc., where he oversees the development and revision of AlcoholEdu for College, an online alcohol education course taken annually by approximately one third of the nation’s first-year college students.
"Individual-level Alcohol Prevention Approaches for College Students: Skills, Motivation, and Normative Influences"
Dr. Larimer’s research and clinical interests include the prevention and treatment of alcohol problems among adolescents and college students; the prediction of initiation of drinking and maintenance of low- or high-risk drinking patterns during college; and the dissemination of evidence-based prevention and treatment approaches into clinical, school, and workplace settings. She is principal investigator or co-investigator of four longitudinal outcome trials of prevention strategies for high-risk drinking funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
“But how do we get it to happen? Moving comprehensive college interventions into practice”
Dr. Saltz’s work has centered on ways in which drinking contexts may influence the risk of subsequent injury or death. He has conducted several studies on “responsible beverage service” programs that seek to have bar and restaurant personnel intervene to reduce the risk of intoxication or of driving while impaired. Other research projects have included drinking among college students, and the design and implementation of comprehensive community prevention interventions to reduce alcohol-involved trauma.
