Upcoming Research Into Action Webinar: Associations of Perceived Drinking Motives of Parents and Friends on Adolescents’ own Drinking Motives

Wednesday, May 12, 2021 – CADCA is proud to present this installment of its Research Into Action webinar series on Wednesday, May 12, at 2 pm EDT featuring Dr. Renee Cloutier. Dr. Cloutier will discuss her recent article, “Associations of perceived drinking motives of parents and friends on adolescents’ own drinking motives,” which was published in Applied Developmental Science in 2021. She will discuss the article’s findings regarding the association between perceptions of parents’ and friends’ motives for drinking alcohol and an adolescent’s own motives for using alcohol. The authors found that perceived motives for friends were more strongly associated with adolescents’ own motives than parents’ perceived motives. The results suggest that perceptions of others’ motives for using alcohol may inform social norms regarding adolescents’ own motivations. Learn how coalitions can apply these findings in their efforts to change norms surrounding underage drinking in their communities.
