Heavy drinking among college students, in addition to the direct deleterious effects on the drinkers including alcohol-related injuries and fatalities, results in increased violence, property destruction, sexual assaults, and other problems that affect the entire college community. Widespread alcohol misuse and the associated consequences on college campuses place university administrators and counselors in the challenging position of developing programs and policies that will adequately protect students from harm. This accessible resource supports these efforts by translating the latest research findings related to college student alcohol abuse and interventions into clear and evidence-based strategies for assessing and treating college students who are abusing alcohol. Features Addresses gender and ethnic differences, special at-risk populations (Greek members, student athletes) and how institutional characteristics (geographic region, size, public/private) relate to patterns of alcohol use. Covers specific activities and events associated with increased risk of alcohol misuse (spring break, 21st birthdays, drinking games). Includes a chapter on student drug use including using marijuana, non-medical use of prescription drugs, and other illicit drugs. Provides detailed information about how to conduct assessments and intervention programs for students with substance abuse problems. Reviews the spectrum of empirically supported prevention programs with a focus on best practices and materials. Provides a concise overview of leading theories used to conceptualize college student drinking and related problems, with an emphasis on clinical implications of each perspective. Discusses the best way to train the next generations of researchers, practitioners and administrators to address alcohol use among college students. Audience The book is equally relevant for counselors and other mental health practitioners who work with college students, educators and administrators, alcohol researchers, and graduate students in counseling, psychology, social work, higher education administration, and related disciplines.
