This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. The Handbook of Alcohol Use and Abuse: Understandings from Synapse to Society explores an eclectic set of methodological and conceptual tools to create a more diverse understanding of alcohol use, misuse and treatment. Moving past the understanding of alcohol usage through the lens of a disease-based model, this book approaches the topic from individual cognition, small group/system social interactions, and population studies. Each approach examines the phenomena of alcohol use and misuse differently, with each offering its own tactics to combat behavior. While these viewpoints are often construed as antagonistic to the disease based model, the book explores how they can be complementary. The handbook brings together an international group of experts in the field to explore how alcohol use and misuse can be understood at varying levels and how these varying conceptualizations can both contrast and combine to form a new picture. Synthesizes varied levels of analysis on alcohol usage Explores alcohol use from both individual and societal levels Examines disease-based and psychosocial approaches Considers social identify and alcohol use Details how Big Data is used in alcohol research
