Thinking About Drinking.
Delaware Univ., Newark.
This document outlines a computerized alcohol lesson and its hardware requirements that were developed as an instructional package for students who violate the alcohol policy at the University of Delaware (UD). The behavioral objectives, that the student should have a basic understanding of the physiological, psychological, and sociological aspects of alcohol use, are stated first. The program itself is in eight sections which cover: (1) Myth or Fact: What Do You Know about Alcohol?; (2) Physiological Effects of Alcohol; (3) Psychological and Sociological Effects of Alcohol; (4) Set, Setting, and Substance; (5) Alcohol-Related Emergencies; (6) What Are the Signs of Alcoholism?; (7) Progression and Change in Alcohol Use; (8) Drinking and Pregnancy: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Each section is briefly described. It is noted that though the program is open-ended, students spend an average of 1.5 hours using it, and that because this program has been in use for more than 5 years, it has undergone revisions incorporating comments and suggestions made by staff and students. The hardware requirements and commands are detailed. Finally, how the program is used at UD and its accessibility is described. (JB)
