Previous research has indicated that poor decisions with regard to drugs (including alcohol) and other issues involving personal risks often stem from poor decision-making strategies.
This study examines the use of decision worksheets in training individuals to employ better decision-making strategies.
Forty-two students enrolled at Texas Christian University participated in a two-session, four-hour study.
An experimental group and a control group were asked to read decision-making scenarios related to alcohol usage.
Participants were then requested to rate a given list of possible alternatives, and to write a persuasive essay defending their ratings.
