Effects of Videotaped Expectancy Challenges on Alcohol Consumption of Adjudicated Students
Research suggests that the manipulation of alcohol expectancies can produce short-term reduction of moderate to heavy alcohol consumption among college populations. The present study examined the utility of an expectancy-challenge intervention administered in a videotaped format. Thirty-three residential male college students with a single alcohol offense attending a diversionary alcohol education program were randomly assigned to either the experimental treatment or an information-based comparison condition. Consistent with experimental construct validity considerations, the information treatment produced significant knowledge increments. However, neither condition had any impact on a battery of measures reflecting alcohol expectancies and alcohol consumption.
