Training for Intervention Procedures (TIPS) for the University is a multimedia, school-based prevention program designed to help college students receiving the training to make safe, sound decisions regarding their own high-risk drinking behavior (e.g., underage drinking, drinking to intoxication, drunk driving) and enable them to intervene to prevent this high-risk behavior among their peers and friends. The program has three modules which can be delivered over one 2-hour session: (1) information about alcohol and other drugs, alcohol’s effects, and jurisdiction-specific laws related to alcohol; (2) skills needed to recognize when an intervention is indicated and then implement such an intervention; and (3) a behavioral rehearsal module in which students practice intervention skills they have discussed and observed.
