Week 4


For my research project, the process that I will be studying is the behavioral process. Specifically, the study will be focused on college students that use alcohol and other recreational drugs and the effects of it. This study is socially relevant and is also an interest to me because I am a college student and many of my piers turn to recreational drugs as a stress reliever. Many students end up becoming addicted and going down the wrong path. It is predicted that a stressor is the trigger of the recreational drug use among college students. Understanding why it happens can be used as a tool to help the students manage their stress in a non life threatening way.
