The Seixas Award for Distinguished Service from the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) was awarded to our own Dr. Barbara McCrady at the RSA conference in Denver recently. This award is named after Frank Seixas, MD, who campaigned for the treatment of alcohol use disorder as a major health problem, conducted research on the diagnosis and treatment of alcohol use disorders, was a founder of the Research Society on Alcoholism, and was the first editor of Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research. Selected recipients for this award must be strong advocates of alcohol research and have provided selfless service to the field.

Motivational Interviewing Professional Training DVD Series 1998 is now available for order online. This series of videotapes, produced at the University of New Mexico, provides an introduction to motivational interviewing by the psychologists who developed it. The tapes are intended to be used as a resource in professional training, offering six hours of clear explanation and practical modeling of component skills. Because it is helpful to see how a method is practiced in various contexts, the tapes include clinical demonstrations of the skills of motivational interviewing, showing ten different therapists working with twelve clients who bring a variety of problems.
