PRISM Lab at Indiana Psychological Association

This weekend, the PRISM lab attended the 2017 Indiana Psychological Association Fall Conference & Annual Meeting in Indianapolis. Both graduate and undergraduate students had the opportunity to present research they have been conducting this semester. For many of our students, this was the first conference they have attended. Check out pictures of the team from the event!

PRISM Attends Research Society on Alcoholism

This week, members of the PRISM lab attended the Research Society on Alcoholism's (RSA) 2017 meeting in Denver, CO. Graduate students Devin Banks and Alia Rowe both presented their research in RSA poster sessions. 

Devin presented research examining typologies (or patterns) of single and co-use of alcohol, marijuana, and cigarettes among a representative sample of US adolescents. She found that use of multiple substances is common among U.S. adolescents, making up over 40% of past-month use, but that typologies of substance use vary by sex and race/ethnicity. The research Devin presented will soon be published in Drug and Alcohol Dependence.

Alia's poster presented research examining whether depression and anxiety helped explain the relationship between bullying and alcohol use. She found that victims of peer bullying engage in alcohol use behaviors, at least partly due to increases in depressive symptoms.

Last week, the PRSIM lab attended the Society for Prevention Research's (SPR's) 2017 annual meeting in Washington, DC. Dr. Zapolski and graduate students Devin Banks and Alia Rowe had the opportunity to present. 

Dr. Zapolski presented a recently published paper examining the relationship between ethnic identity, drug attitudes and drug use among adolescents of various races/ethnicities. Devin presented a related paper examining racial/ethnic differences in the relationship between alcohol-related beliefs and alcohol use throughout adolescence. Alia also presented a poster and participated in the student poster contest. Her presentation addressed the interaction of depression and experiences of bullying on substance use among adolescents.  

The team enjoyed networking, sharing their research, and learning about new advances in the field. See below for some snapshots and see our research page for more information on our current projects and recent publications.
