Research Interests

Dr. Larimer's research and clinical interests include 1) prevention and treatment of alcohol problems among adolescents and college students, 2) prediction of initiation of drinking and maintenance of low- or high-risk drinking patterns during college, 3) co-morbidity of substance use with depression, disordered eating, and gambling problems, and 4) dissemination of evidence-based prevention and treatment approaches into clinical, school, and work-site settings.

Dr. Larimer is the author and co-author of numerous journal articles and book chapters on alcohol-related topics. She is principal investigator of a National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism funded longitudinal outcome trial of prevention strategies for high-risk drinking, including mailed, small-group, and mass-media norms-challenging components.
