TIPS for the University™: Sound Choices About Alcohol Usage
Each year, 1,825 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die from alcohol-related injuries, and 696,000 college students are assaulted by a student who had been drinking according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. TIPS for the University is a 2.5 hour program that helps you make sound choices when faced with difficult decisions about alcohol use. Working together and with administration, you will address drinking behaviors specific to your school and develop intervention techniques appropriate to your campuses.
TIPS for the University provides you with the knowledge and confidence necessary to reduce high-risk drinking behavior among your peers. More than 1,200 campuses nationwide have implemented TIPS for the University. Make your institution part of this successful training initiative.
TIPS for the University builds on the concerns you feel for the safety of your peers. Our TIPS trainers use a non-judgmental approach to help students. The TIPS program presents a new approach to dealing with others, and it does so in a unique way: by asking you to become actively engaged in the training process. The process includes observation, practice, and feedback.
TIPS trained participants will return to the University community with an increased sense of confidence and security. You will learn how you can bring about positive changes in guests' drinking behavior and how your people skills can work to the benefit of their guests and themselves.
You will receive your own workbook to use the day of the presentation and keep after the course is completed. You will take a test which covers the important points that were discussed. TIPS certification cards will be mailed to you upon successful completion of the program.
Learning Objectives. By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Develop decision-making skills that help you weigh the consequences of their actions and those of your peers.
