Tools for drug and alcohol education : using decision worksheets in personal problem solving.
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.
