"The Use of Parent-Based Normative Feedback Interventions to Reduce College Alcohol Risk"              

Presented by Lucy Kilp Napper, PhD, Lehigh University. 

A growing body of research suggests that parents continue to exert significant influence on their child’s alcohol-related attitudes and behavior even after matriculation to college. During this presentation, we will explore the influence of parents on college students’ alcohol use and the utility of social norms based parent interventions to promote less risky alcohol use among college students.

"Binges, Blunts and Brain Development: Why delaying the onset of alcohol and other drug use is so important."

Dr. Aaron White, co-creator of AlcoholEdu, will explore adolescent brain development and the impact of alcohol and other drugs on it. We also will examine research regarding environmental strategies, school programs and parenting approaches for delaying the onset of alcohol use among youth.
