Defensiveness in Female College Students and Its Impact on Their MAST and CAGE Scores
Laux, John M.; Salyers, Kathleen M.; Jones, Amy L.
Journal of Addictions & Offender Counseling, v28 n1 p21-30 Oct 2007
This study found a statistically significant inverse relationship between defensiveness and female college students' Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (M. L. Selzer, 1971) and CAGE (J. A. Ewing, 198 ) scores. Female college students who produce negative screening scores were more defensive than those whose alcohol use screens were positive. (Contains 1 table.)
