Mauri Matsuda, Criminology & Criminal Justice faculty, co-presented a poster titled "Social Networks of First-Time DUI Clients" at the Research Society on Alcoholism conference in San Diego, Calif. Co-presenters were Karen Chan Osilla and David Kennedy (both at RAND Corporation), and they discussed their initial results from a research study examining the social network characteristics of a subsample of participants in Project Rethinking Avenues for Change (REACH), a study comparing effects of cognitive behavioral therapy with usual care for individuals convicted of a first-time DUI and screened for alcohol use disorders. The main objectives of this study were to describe the overall social network characteristics of the sample at baseline, assess whether social network characteristics differ by participant gender, age, and race/ethnicity, and to examine whether social network characteristics change between baseline and follow-up.
