Item description for Influences of Adolescent Alcohol Drinking - Adolescent Perceptions of Peer Drinking by Doug Rugh...
Despite a long history of prevention efforts and laws prohibiting the consumption of alcohol for those below the age of 21 years, underage drinking continues at both a high prevalence rate and high incidence rate. The purpose of this research study is to explain underage drinking of alcohol conditioned by perception of peer drinking. An acquisition model is conjectured and then a relationship within the model is explained with a national sample of students. From a developmental perspective, drinking alcohol is acquired in a reasonably ordered fashion that reflects the influences over time of the culture, family, and peers. The study measures perceptions of alcohol drinking during early adolescence when alcohol use begins the maintenance phase of the behavior. The correlation between drinking alcohol and perception of classmate drinking can be described via social learning theory. Multilevel logistic regression was used to analyze the relations. The book is addressed to researchers in social welfare, sociology, and public health.
