Environmental Management Strategies. Annotated Bibliography of Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Resources.
Kaphingst, Kimberly, Comp.
This annotated bibliography was developed to provide those interested in alcohol and other drug prevention at colleges and universities, and in surrounding communities, with a ready reference of current, important, and available information resources. Although alcohol and other drug problems have been a focus at institutions of higher education for over two decades, relatively little research on what works to prevent these problems has been conducted in a systematic manner. However, as this bibliography reflects, much has been published to inform a greater understanding of how alcohol and other drug problems develop, and to describe promising theories and practices for preventing and reducing these problems. This bibliography of 130 resources is by no means exhaustive, but it represents what the authors believe are some of the more important sources for advancing prevention in higher education. Three major criteria were used in selecting references for this bibliography: the philosophy of the reference reflected an environmental approach rather than an individual-level approach, the reference fit into identified topic areas listed in the index, and, with few exceptions, the reference was published during or after 1990. Updates to the bibliography are available via the Center's web site. (Author/MKA)
