Review Quotes
"Provides a comprehensive review of college student drinking, as well as straightforward tools and techniques to use with students who might be at risk. The book demystifies the idea that intervening in high-risk alcohol consumption is something that has to be done by experts. It is written in such a way that staff and faculty, even those not specially trained to work with alcohol problems, could pick it up and quickly learn how to have a brief conversation that has a lasting impact. The book shows step by step how to work with individual students and with groups, and how to develop a plan for integrating effective alcohol interventions into the larger campus community. It also provides a number of practical clinical and assessment tools. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to others who work in college health contexts."--Betsy D. Foy, MHS, CHES, Assistant Director, Student Health and Counseling, Washington University in St. Louis; Co-Chair, Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Committee, American College Health Association

"Walters and Baer have rendered a daunting topic manageable. This book is essential reading for counselors, student affairs professionals, campus housing personnel, and health care providers. The authors' approach is perfectly pitched to the developmental levels and alcohol use patterns of college student populations. Empirically based and practical, this guide presents an approach that is effective."--Jennifer Rikard, PhD, Coordinator, ASPIRE Program (Alcohol and Other Substances Prevention/Intervention Re-directive Effort), Counseling and Psychological Services, San Diego State University <BR>"Walters and Baer have done campus alcohol preventionists a real serviceby producing this immensely useful guide to bridging research and practice on motivational interventions with college students. In particular, their assessment recommendations for different lengths of encounters are a huge contribution to the field. I plan to make this book the foundation for our work with campus administrators and counselors on individual-focused interventions. It answers just about every question campuses may have about delivering these services."--Laurie Davidson, MA, Center for College Health and Safety, Education Development Center, Inc., Newton, Massachusetts <BR>"Walters and Baer have provided a superb resource for anyone who is concerned about college drinking. There is really no other book like it. They offer a clear and evidence-based set of practical tools for everything from a 5-minute chat to programmatic group or individual treatment. Through it all runs a compassionate, person-centered way of talking with students that fosters change rather than defensiveness."--William R. Miller, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of New Mexico
