Abstract / Description

A growing body of empirical work concerns how people manage alcohol intake, and what they do to refuse offers of alcoholic drinks. In this chapter we first consider psychological components linked to managing alcohol intake and to refusing alcoholic drinks. Work on how to enhance adherence to guidelines designed to promote low-risk drinking is examined. We then explore measures used to gauge skills involved in managing alcohol intake and review the intervention studies designed to enhance drink refusal skills. The contributions of qualitative research concerning strategies for managing alcohol intake are then considered. We conclude the chapter by presenting a Health Action Process Approach to managing alcohol intake and consider the advantages of utilising a cyclical, stage-based approach to this topic area.
