Ten-to-fourteen-year-olds and alcohol : a developmental study in the Central Region of Scotland by P. P Aitken( Book )

The abuse of alcohol by some young people has received considerable attention over recent years. Three trends appear to give cause for concern. First, the age at which young people begin to drink has been falling with successive generations. Second, there is some evidence of an increase in the number of alcoholics in their twenties and thirties. Third, the increase in offences related to drunkenness over recent years appears to have been most rapid amongst the young. In response to this concern, the Health Education Unit of the Scottish Home and Health Department commissioned two studies of the development of attitudes and behaviour related to drinking. Investigations with 6- to 10-year-olds (Jahoda & Crammond, 1972) and 14- to 17-year-olds (Davies & Stacey, 1972) indicated that important changes in behaviour/attitudes related to drinking occur between the ages of 10 and 14. The present study was designed to explore the nature of these changes
