Venner, Kamilla Assistant Professor


My research aims to improve treatment outcomes among American Indians/Alaska Natives. Currently I am the principal investigator of a research grant to adapt motivational interviewing and the community reinforcement approach with and for the Zuni people. We will conduct a randomized controlled trial comparing the MI/CRA adaptations to treatment as usual at the Zuni Recovery Center. In addition, I am examining how AI/AN have resolved alcohol dependence to highlight strengths of the culture that may inform future substance abuse treatment.
