Designing Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Programs in Higher Education: Bringing Theory into Practice.
Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention, Newton, MA.
This volume contains 6 of the 17 papers written under the auspices of the Approaches to Accountability in Prevention Program sponsored by the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (ED) from 1988 through 1991 to foster the development of papers examining theoretical applications of alcohol and other drug (AOD) prevention programs at higher education institutions. It was hoped that these papers would be useful to administrators in planning more responsive AOD programs for students. The papers are: "A Social Role Negotiation Approach to Campus Prevention of Alcohol and Other Drug Problems" (Thomas W. Blume); "The Web of Caring: An Approach to Accountability in Alcohol Policy" (William David Burns and Margaret Klawunn); "An Integrated Theoretical Framework for Individual Responsibility and Institutional Leadership in Preventing Alcohol and Drug Abuse on the College Campus" (Gerardo M. Gonzalez; "A Social Ecology Theory of Alcohol and Drug Use Prevention among College and University Students" (William B. Hansen); "College Student Misperceptions of Alcohol and Other Drug Norms among Peers: Exploring Causes, Consequences, and Implications for Prevention Programs" (H. Wesley Perkins); and "Institutional Factors Influencing the Success of Drug Abuse Education and Prevention" (Philip Salem and M. Lee Williams). (Individual papers contain references.) (CH)
