Teaming for Interdisciplinary Research Pre-Seed Program

Addiction Prevention Research Team

Addiction Prevention Research Team

Addiction Prevention Research Team

The focus of this interdisciplinary team is to develop a proposal for external funding to support early interventions for chemical and behavioral addiction in schools. With faculty representatives from counseling, school psychology, and computer science, we hope to create a research project that would allow for early detection and intervention among students demonstrating addictive behaviors. We plan to implement technology as part of both the detection process and intervention in conjunction with evidence-based counseling practices. A key component of our research project will be to train school personnel (teachers, counselors, administrators) to screen for addiction and connect at-risk students to effective resources.
