Alcohol Use and Drinking Motives among Sanctioned and Nonsanctioned Students
Doumas, Diana M.
Journal of College Counseling, v20 n2 p113-125 Jul 2017
This study examined differences in the relationship of drinking motives to drinking behavior among sanctioned and nonsanctioned 1st-year students (N = 298). Results of hierarchical regression analyses indicated that for both sanctioned and nonsanctioned students, alcohol use was predicted by social and enhancement motives, and alcohol-related consequences were predicted by social, enhancement, and coping motives. High levels of conformity motives predicted alcohol use and alcohol-related consequences for sanctioned students only. Counseling implications are discussed.
