The transtheoretical model of change for mutli-level interventions for alcohol abuse on campus
Date of Original Version
This paper brings together the pressing problem of alcohol abuse on college campuses on one of the most promising solutions - stage-based interventions applied at multiple levels. The interventions fit the Transtheoretical Model, which construes behavior change as a process that unfolds over time and involves progress through a series of stages. Unique to the paper is how the stage paradigm can be applied at four levels of the university (leadership, facility, and staff, students, and alumni) and into the community. This approach to change can produce impressive impacts on alcohol abuse and its serious consequences.
