Paul Gruenewald Thinking about Drinking: the Social Dynamics of Drinking Behavior

Thursday 1/21 3:15PM - 4:15PM

 

Crabtree  A115 
February 9  |  3:15-4:15

 

Paul Gruenewald of the 
Prevention Research Center (PRC) and the 
Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) will introduce new approaches to understanding and modeling the social foundations of drinking and associated risks for alcohol abuse, problems and dependence.   

Grand Rounds sign-in will begin at 3:00 outside of A115.


This talk will introduce new approaches to understanding and modeling the social foundations of drinking and associated risks for alcohol abuse, problems and dependence.   The approaches are strongly ecological, computational, and analytic.  I argue that the social determinants of "having a drink" are multi-scale and complex, but analytically tractable.  As such, drinking behaviors, understood as a whole, constitute a model social system that can be studied to elucidate the essential social dynamics of drug use, abuse and dependence.  I begin to chart a course through this territory to enable future social ecological research to prevent alcohol problems.

Sponsored by the Pitt Public Health Office of the Dean & the BCHS Social Dynamics & Community
