About the Course:

This study examined the effectiveness of three peer-facilitated brief alcohol interventions—small group motivational interviewing, motivationally enhanced peer theater, and an interactive alcohol-education program—with students engaging in high-risk drinking who were referred for alcohol policy violations. Six-month follow-up data were collected on drinking frequency and quantity, negative consequences, use of protective behaviors, and perceptions of peers’ drinking norms.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, Assessing the Effectiveness of Peer-Facilitated Interventions Addressing High-Risk Drinking Among Judicially Mandated College Students created by Matthew P. Martens, Ph.D., Mary E. Larimer Ph.D., Jason R. Kilmer, Ph.D., and Clayton Neighbors, Ph.D., and Dolores Cimini, Ph.D., and Joseph M. Monserrat, Psy.D. in 2009.
