Alcohol Use and Risky Sexual Behavior Among College Students and Youth: Evaluating the Evidence

From Journal of Studies on Alcohol, Supplement #14

About the Course:

This publication evaluates the empirical associations between
alcohol use and risky sex at two levels of analysis. Global associations test whether individuals who engage in one behavior are more likely to
engage in the other, whereas event-specific associations test whether the likelihood of engaging in one behavior on a given occasion varies as a function of engaging in the other on that same occasion. Course materials are found on pages 101-117 using Adobe toolbar page finder.
