Psychology of Alcohol and Other Drugs: A Research Perspective

Sampul Depan
SAGE, 2001 - 634 halaman

Psychology of Alcohol and Other Drugs encourages the reader to become a critical consumer rather than a docile recipient of research information in this field, much of it interpreted in a highly dubious and frequently political manner.

The author offers a psychological perspective in his coverage of alcohol and drug-related issues, focusing in depth on key topics.

-Examines the contribution of research methodology to outcomes

-Offers alternative explanations to alcohol and drug-related issues

-Considers causal relationships in substance abuse

-Discusses alcohol and drug abuse in different groups defined by gender, age race, and marital status

-Includes Danish and Swedish studies of hereditary and environmental influences
