About the Course:
The aims of this study were to (1) determine recognition of and self-reported concern regarding alcohol poisoning symptoms versus other alcohol-related behaviors among students turning 21 years old, (2) assess the frequency of helping behavior among students in situations where peers display alcohol poisoning symptoms, (3) assess sources from which students seek help, and (4) consider reasons why students report reluctance to seek help.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Alcohol Poisoning Among College Students Turning 21: Do They Recognize the Symptoms and How Do They Help? created by Melissa A. Lewis, Ph.D., Clayton Neighbors, Ph.D, and Mary E. Larimer, Ph.D. and Laura Oster-Aaland, M.S., and Jane Vangsness, M.S. in 2009.
