Alcohol consumption among youth : current trends and research findings by Gregory A Austin( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This update offers current knowledge about the scope and nature of adolescent drinking. Its goal is to bridge the communications gap between the researcher, the practitioner, and the general population by disseminating research findings in an accessible manner and by providing an introductory review of the significance of these findings. Abstracts are provided for a wide cross-section of 36 studies published since 1990 on adolescent drinking, use correlates and risk factors, and prevention program evaluations. Summarized and assessed are recent survey data, the major sources of the survey data, and trends. The epidemiological literature is reviewed in regard to three related questions: (1) How many primary and secondary school youth are drinking and how much are they consuming? (2) What are the patterns and effects of use? and (3) What are the current trends? In spite of extensive research in this area, gaps and inconsistencies in findings are apparent. Even so, today's youth use alcohol more than illicit drugs and a substantial proportion of high school students are drinking regularly and heavily. As for prevention, results indicate that a prevention curriculum's potential effectiveness is partly a function of the substance addressed and that successful strategies against one drug may not succeed against other drugs. (Contains over 300 references.) (RJM)
Prevention bibliography, 1993-1994 : an annotated guide to information on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among youth by Gregory A Austin( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography consists of an indexed collection of 234 references, with abstracts, to literature on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among school-age youth in the United States, and what can be done to prevent or reduce use. The main focus is on research--specifically, epidemiological surveys, investigations of risk factors, and prevention and intervention program evaluations. Includes a topic index with entries for subjects, specific drugs, and specific populations covered, and a separate document type index. Index terms which designate population types and geographic areas refer to research or other literature which specifically discusses those populations. (Bf)
Prevention bibliography, 1990-1991 : an annotated guide to information on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among youth by Gregory A Austin( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and Spanish and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography consists of an indexed collection of 230 references, with abstracts, to literature published between January 1990 and June 1991 on alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among school-age youth in the United States, and what can be done to prevent or reduce use. The main focus is on research, specifically epidemiological surveys, investigations of risk factors, and prevention program evaluations. General discussions, literature reviews, and program descriptions were included if they seemed helpful in understanding the nature of the problem and developing programs to address it. Because of the dearth of information about program effectiveness, program evaluations from other English-speaking countries were also included. The bibliography lists documents with their abstracts alphabetically by author. The index follows, with entries for subjects and specific drugs discussed and type of document. Index terms indicate which designate population types and geographic areas refer to research or other literature which specifically discusses them. Author abstracts tend to be limited to a summary of the findings, saying little about implications for practice or further research. While this guide relies heavily on existing author abstracts, these abstracts were revised as necessary, based on examination of the study, to ensure thoroughness. It was also necessary to write many new abstracts for this bibliography. In developing this guide an extensive literature search was conducted through the major computerized databases (etoh, druginfo, eric) and expanded upon through manual searches of books, publishers' lists, and printed current awareness bibliographies.
