Event Details

 

Talking Point Presented by Professor Emmanuel Kuntsche

Why do young people use alcohol? Research on drinking motives and other alcohol-related cognitions.

Emmanuel Kuntsche is trained in Psychology, Sociology, Public Health  and Statistics.  He is one of the leading drinking motive researchers worldwide. In 2010, he initiated and conducted the largest cross-cultural drinking motives study to date, including 33,813 alcohol-using students from 13 European countries. He currently holds the position of Associate Professor of Developmental Psychopathology at the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

The presentation provides an overview of the theoretical foundations of contemporary drinking motive research; the Motivational Model of Alcohol Use  (Cox and Klinger). It will clarify the relationship between personality factors, alcohol expectancies and drinking motives. The presentation will tap into cross-cultural differences and similarities of drinking motives and to what degree they can be transferred to other domains of young people’s functioning. It will elaborate on the link between motives and characteristics of the situations in which alcohol use takes place including preloading. The origins of drinking motives in childhood will also be covered.
