Christiansen, Bruce A.; Goldman, Mark S.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v51 n2 p249-57 Apr 1983
Assessed the theoretical and practical utility of adolescent alcohol expectancies against demographic/background variables in the prediction of adolescent drinking (N=1,580). Results showed that expectancies equalled and added to the predictive power of the background variables. Adolescents who drank in a social manner expected alcohol to enhance their social behavior.
