Main description:

Widespread alcohol misuse on college campuses places university administrators and counselors in the challenging position of developing programs and policies that will adequately protect students from harm. This accessible resource supports these efforts by translating the latest research findings related to college student alcohol abuse and interventions into clear and evidence-based strategies for assessing and treating college students who are abusing alcohol. Higher education administrators will benefit from this book's review of the spectrum of empirically supported prevention programs with a focus on best practices and materials.
