Parental perceptions of and influences on children's drinking behavior

Wednesday, November 4, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Individual drinking behaviors are heavily influenced by social, cultural, and environmental factors. This session highlights new research on the ways that family characteristics in particular shape adolescents' drinking, with a focus on gender and racial/ethnic differences.
Session Objectives: Describe the association between maternal and paternal relationship quality and heavy episodic drinking in early adulthood. Explain barriers in youth substance use prevention related to generational differences between youth and those providing education. Compare drinking behaviors, attitudes towards alcohol use, and negative consequences, between students who use alcohol or other drugs at home with a parents’ knowledge, and to students who use alcohol or other drugs at home without their parents’ knowledge. Describe how different or similar Asian ethnic groups are in alcohol-related issues.
