Perkins talks on Social Norms in Arizona

H. Wesley Perkins of the anthropology/sociology department spoke about a survey of middle school and high school students' drug and alcohol abuse — and their perception of their peers' use — at a recent program in Tucson, Ariz.

Perkins created the survey given to the students and is one of the primary researchers of the Social Norms approach to preventing school and college-age substance abuse.

A story about the event and the survey was featured in the March 8 issue of the Arizona Daily Star. Read Survey: Most just say no.
