Period of Performance:
04/2018 - 03/2023
Goals and Aims of Study
Aim 1: To examine hypothesis-driven neurocognitive and behavioral mechanisms of drinking behavior changes following two treatments that will target three hypothesized mechanisms: craving/regulation of craving, cognitive and behavioral control, and regulation of affect/arousal.
Aim 2: To identify baseline characteristics (neurocognitive and behavioral) predictive of reductions in drinking over time and differential patterns of response to Cognitive Behavior Therapy or Mindfulness Based Treatment.
