About the Course:

Underage drinking is an important public health issue for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) adolescents, as it is for U. S. teens of all ethnicities. One of the demonstrated risk factors for the development of alcohol use disorders in AI/AN is early age of initiation of drinking. To address this issue a randomized trial to assess the efficacy of Motivational Interviewing (MI) compared to Psycho-Education (PE) to reduce and prevent underage drinking in AI/AN youth was developed and implemented. For teens who were already drinking, participating in the intervention (MI or PE) was effective. The results of this study suggest that intervening against underage drinking using either MI or PE in AI/AN youth can result in reduced drinking, prevention of initiation of drinking, and other positive behavioral outcomes. Brief interventions that enhance motivation to change as well as psycho-education may provide a successful approach to reducing the potential morbidity of underage drinking in this high-risk group.

This course is based on the article,A Pilot Randomized Trial of Motivational Interviewing Compared to Psycho-Education for Reducing and Preventing Underage Drinking in American Indian Adolescents created by David A. Gilder, M.D., et al. in 2017.
