Weeding and Seeding: Programming for Alcohol Abuse Prevention and Wellness Enhancement in an Undergraduate Population
Halligan, Fredrica R.; Pohl, Jonathan A.; Smith, M. Katrina
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v20 n3 p33-51 Feb 2006
College students who are no longer fully adolescent and not yet fully adult are frequently at risk for developing habits of excessive alcohol use, with consequent poor study habits and aberrant socialization patterns. "Weeding out" such trends is the work of prevention programs on campus. "Seeding" with other pro-social norms becomes the second step, the work of Wellness enhancement. Wellness is herein described as health in mind, body and spirit. It becomes a global concept that fosters cooperative programming for Student Affairs staff and faculty. This weeding-and-seeding approach shows promise for more community-oriented, personally healthy environmental change. (Contains 3 notes.)
