Couverture de l’ouvrage Drug abuse: concepts, prevention, and cessation
Drug Abuse: Concepts, Prevention, and Cessation serves as a comprehensive source of information on the topography of, causes of, and solutions to drug problems. The text covers conceptual issues regarding definitions of drug use, misuse, abuse, and dependence. Importantly, the text addresses a variety of theoretical bases currently applied to the development of prevention and cessation programs, specific program content from evidence-based programs, and program processes and modalities. Information regarding etiology, prevention, and cessation is neatly delineated into (a) neurobiological, (b) cognitive, (c) micro-social, and (d) macro-social/physical environmental units. The book is ideally suited as a primary source for students and professionals in chemical dependence programs, clinical and health psychology, public health, preventive medicine, nursing, sociology, and social work, among other fields, on the nature, causes, prevention, and cessation of the abuse of legal and illegal drugs.

Her research emphasis is on the mediation of implicit processes and competing cognitive, social, personality, and cultural constructs in the etiology and prevention of drug abuse and HIV-risk behavior among at-risk populations. Other major interests include neurobiological processes and brain structures associated with implicit processes and addictive behaviors. She has published in a variety of journals that emphasize the addictive process and health behaviors.
