Benthin, Alida; And Others
Journal of Adolescence, v16 n2 p153-68 Jun 1993
High school students (n=41) evaluated 30 activities (smoking, drinking, drug use, sex) on perceived risk and benefit. Adolescents who participated in activity perceived risks to be smaller, better known, and more controllable than did nonparticipants. Participants perceived greater benefits relative to risks, greater peer pressure to participate, and higher rate of participation by others. (Author/NB)
