College Women's Experiences and Perceptions of Drinking: A Phenomenological Exploration
Likis-Werle, Elizabeth; Borders, L. DiAnne
Journal of College Counseling, v20 n2 p99-112 Jul 2017
College women's drinking rates are increasing, yet there is limited research on what is contributing to this phenomenon. In this study, the authors explored a fuller picture of how college women experience and perceive drinking situations. Qualitative data from 2 focus groups of high-risk and low-risk drinkers were analyzed with interpretative phenomenological analysis. Similarities and contrasts are discussed, implications for college counselors are highlighted, and areas for future research are recommended.
