Developing female specific intervention strategies to reduce the alarming levels of risky alcohol consumption by young women (2009 - 2010)

 

The long term aim of this research is to develop female specific intervention strategies to reduce the alarming levels of risky alcohol consumption by young women.

Specifically, the project aims to:

  • describe young women's experience in public drinking venues: who is drinking, how they are drinking, their interactions with other females and males, and other behaviours associated with drinking that occur in theses venues;
  • explore the current culture of drinking by young women 18-25 years old;
  • examine the norms associated with alcohol consumption for young women 18-25 years old; and
  • synthesise this information and develop evidence based recommendations for interventions to reduce risky alcohol consumption by young women.

This research is supported by the Alcohol Education and Rehabilitation Foundation Limited.
