The NCRG blog team recently had the opportunity to interview Dr. Clayton Neighbors, director of the Social Influences and Health Behaviors Lab at the University of Houston. Last year, Dr. Neighbors was awarded an NCRG grant to develop and test an online screening and brief intervention (SBI) aimed at reducing gambling-related problems among college students. The SBI will be included on the NCRG’s website, CollegeGambling.org, which was developed as a free resource to help colleges and universities address gambling disorders and responsible gaming on campus.
During the interview, Dr. Neighbors discussed some of the theoretical underpinnings of the study, titled “A Randomized Controlled Trial of Personalized Normative Feedback for Problem Gambling College Students.” He also discussed how his previous work on an online SBI for alcohol abuse among college students will affect the development of the current project, as well as the role that gender may play in the research.
