ATTC Messenger October 2022: Community-Based Participatory Research key to developing culturally-relevant alcohol interventions among Native communities

Oklahoma is home to thriving and diverse communities of American Indian (AI) peoples, including federally recognized AI tribes and over 300,000 residents, making it the state with the of AI Peoples.

As researchers at Oklahoma State University, we are interested in developing and increasing access to culturally-relevant alcohol use treatments and research with AI communities through collaborative research partnerships with local tribes (termed community-based participatory research, or CBPR).

An important step toward this goal is by sharing our work, “An overview of alcohol use interventions with American Indian/Alaska Native Peoples,” published in the Behavior Therapist, which summarizes research findings on drinking among AI peoples and describes cultural considerations when working with these communities on this sensitive topic.
