Expectancy Challenge and Drinking Reduction: Experimental Evidence for a Mediational Process.
Darkes, Jack; Goldman, Mark S.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v61 n2 p344-53 Apr 1993
Assigned moderately to heavily drinking male college students to either expectancy challenge, traditional information, or assessment-only conditions. Expectancy challenge produced significant drinking decreases compared with other groups. Decreases in measured expectancies paralleled drinking decreases in challenge condition. Findings support causal (mediational) interpretations of expectancy operation. (Author/NB)
