Predicting Alcohol Consumption: The Influences of Perceived Opposite-Sex Peer Expectancies and Drinking Behavior.
Mooney, Debra K.; Gilbert, Brenda O.
Journal of Child and Adolescent Substance Abuse, v9 n1 p73-84 1999
Describes the relationship between personal and perceived opposite-sex peer expectations and drinking behavior. As compared to themselves, participants believed that their opposite-sex best friend had greater expectations for the effects of alcohol. Perceived peer expectancies added to the prediction of self-reported drinking beyond that which is predicted by personal alcohol expectancies. (Contains 34 references.) (Author/GCP)
