Smith, Anthony M. A.; Rosenthal, Doreen A.
Journal of Adolescence, v18 n2 p229-45 Apr 1995
Adolescents (n=650) rated 10 activities involving drug and alcohol use, unprotected sexual intercourse, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in 6 domains concerning risk to self or others, pleasure, control, peer approval, and parental disapproval. A factor analysis of the items revealed three second-order factors: inherent danger, tradeoff between pleasure and peer approval, and locus of control. (JPS)
