Brief Group Alcohol Interventions with College Students: Examining Motivational Components.
McNally, Abigail M.; Palfai, Tibor P.
Journal of Drug Education, v33 n2 p159-76 2003
Explores whether components of brief interventions could be effectively administered to mixed groups of drinking and non-drinking students. Among at-risk drinkers, significant reductions in heavy drinking episode frequency at four-week follow-up were found for the self-norm group only. Results suggest that self-norm discrepancy enhancement strategies may be more effective than actual-ideal discrepancy strategies when used with a mixed drinking group.
