Gerard Johansen of the University Counseling Center and Mark Celio, doctoral student in clinical psychology, presented a workshop Oct. 18 at the U.S. Department of Education 2010 National Meeting on Alcohol and Other Drug and Violence Prevention in Higher Education. The workshop, titled “ Developing and Conducting Alcohol Field Research in a Northeast College Tavern District: the Challenges, Surprises, and Discoveries,” is based on a continuing research developed and implemented by the Binghamton University Collaborative Ethanol Group, with fellow researchers Distinguished Teaching Professor of Psychology Steven Lisman, Distinguished Professor of Psychology Linda P. Spear and doctoral student in behavioral neuroscience, Courtney O’Hagen. The workshop provided an overview of developing alcohol field research in a college tavern district during the times that young adults will normally socialize. Conference participants were invited to consult with the Binghamton University researchers during the development and implementation of similar studies when they returned to their campus communities.
