Assessment of adolescent refusal skills in an alcohol misuse prevention study.
Although many substance abuse prevention programs seek to enhance the ability of adolescents to refuse offers of alcohol and other drugs, few report assessments of refusal skill ability or its relationship to substance use.
This report describes a procedure to assess the ability of adolescents to refuse the offer of a beer, and presents the findings of those assessments as well as their relationships to alcohol misuse prevention knowledge, susceptibility to peer pressure, internal health locus of control, self-esteem, and alcohol use and misuse.
A one-third random sample (n = 1012) of 10th graders participating in a longitudinal evaluation of an alcohol misuse prevention curriculum was assessed individually.
