Why “Accidents” Are Not Accidental: Using Behavioral Science to Prevent Injury

You’ll learn about several research studies that use behavioral strategies to reduce “accidental” injuries. Many of the studies will focus on children’s injuries, and one tackles the challenge of distracted pedestrian behavior among college students. The studies were conducted both in the United States and abroad. Child injury prevention strategies focus on changing the behavior of both children and the adults who supervise them, often using technology like virtual reality to instigate change.

Dr. David Schwebel is Associate Dean for Research in the Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He has published over 180 peer-reviewed manuscripts, most focusing on understanding and preventing unintentional injury in children, adolescents, and young adults. From a prevention perspective, Dr. Schwebel has developed and implemented injury prevention techniques for a range of situations, including pedestrian safety training in virtual reality environments, school playground safety via behavioral strategies targeting teachers, drowning prevention through lifeguard training at public swimming pools, dog bite prevention in rural China and in the United States, and kerosene safety in low-income South Africa neighborhoods. Dr. Schwebel’s research has been funded by NIH, CDC, DOT, and several other federal, non-profit and industry groups.

Environmental Roundtable: From Inspiration to Perspiration -- Taking Action

Time: 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Location: Monroe Hall 152

Environmental Roundtables are facilitated discussions of important environmental issues, hosted by the Loyola University Environment Program. Facilitators include Environment Program Students, Faculty and guest hosts.

This roundtable is an opportunity for the Loyola community to reflect upon Josh Fox's visit Feb. 9-10th, and to discuss the work that needs to be done now to address our understanding, analyzing, and responding to local, national, and global environmental challenges. The spirited discussions we had with him during his Loyola visit provided inspiration and challenged our views of the nature of environmental crises and the actions we should take. Faculty and students from the Environment Program will initiate our roundtable discussion by providing just a few "take home questions" in short 2-3 minute comments to stimulate our group discussion.

Loyola University’s Interdisciplinary Environment program draws upon Loyola’s commitment to social justice and the “natural laboratory” that is New Orleans, our proximity to coastal wetlands, and a city that has responded with resilience to natural and human challenges for nearly 300 years. Our program offers four undergraduate majors and a minor: Environmental Science, Environmental Science (Teaching Certification), Environmental Studies (Humanities), Environmental Studies (Social Sciences), and a minor in Environmental Studies.
