Dialogue about Drinking



URI Psychology Professor Mark Wood is sending a message to parents of college-bound teens: Be aware that this is a time when teens tend to increase their alcohol consumption. His warning is being spread through the news locally and worldwide. The July 7 news release about his research that was published in the June 2010 issue of the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology prompted interviews and reports that have been carried by the Boston Globe, as well as the Boston Globe health blog, The Times of India, the medGuru, and eWorldPost.com. Wood was interviewed about the issue by Providence Eyewitness News.
