Expertise: Because of the variety of roles he has held throughout his career, Dr. Drum's research focus has evolved and transitioned over time. Presently, Dr. Drum is interested in the experiences of college students suffering from distress and suicidal thoughts. His interest in exploring this population arises from a belief that the current crisis-focused treatment approach in college counseling centers needs to be augmented with a more proactive and preventative service paradigm that is capable of reducing the prevalence of suicidality among college students. His research team continues to explore data collected by the Research Consortium of Counseling Centers in Higher Education, where it has received survey responses from over 26,000 participants representing 70 U.S. colleges and universities, establishing the largest dataset of in-depth college student suicidal behavior. These results will be used to find ways to help this population enhance resilience, decrease personal vulnerabilities, minimize encounters with traumatic events and, ultimately, fortify student's resistance to suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
