Attunement and Self-care

CUES is a SWA-facilitated discussion about group norms regarding alcohol use. Students will answer questions regarding alcohol use and binge drinking in a short form prior to the event in order to determine personal views and perceptions of group views; this data is then presented and discussed in both small group and whole group conversations. CUES is led by two SWAs. Please note that no staff (i.e., coaches, RAs, etc.) may be present during CUES. This program may be helpful for groups that frequently socialize together (i.e., sport teams, student organizations) to start a conversation about the role that alcohol may play in their group! CUES works best with groups of 15+ individuals.
