Dr. Laura Salazar, professor of public health in the Department of Health Policy & Behavioral Science in Georgia State University School of Public Health, serves as the project leader of a R01 project that has received a $3.5 million, 5-year award by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). The co-PI of the project is Dr. Dominic Parrott, professor of psychology at Georgia State University.
Entitled “Promoting prosocial bystander behavior in intoxicated men: Evaluation of RealConsent2.0”, the proposed project will test the efficacy of “RealConsent2.0”, Dr. Salazar’s evidence-based Sexual Violence prevention program and which will be distinguished by the integration of new program segments specific to how alcohol use functions to inhibit bystander intervention for sexual violence.
Bystander behavior in response to intervention opportunities will be assessed directly via novel and validated virtual reality-based paradigm as well as indirectly via 6- and 12-month follow-up self-report assessments. The intended outcome of this project is to provide the first evidence of how to promote prosocial bystander behavior in men who consumed alcohol and improve future development, evaluation, and dissemination of bystander intervention programs.
