Depression, Not Anxiety, Predicts Drinking in Adolescent Girls

Research Society on Alcoholism

Internalizing problems such as depression and anxiety, along with alcohol misuse, increase during adolescence. All three predict poor social, academic, and emotional outcomes – particularly for girls. However, it is unclear what relationships exist among these problems. Do depression and anxiety lead to more alcohol use or does drinking lead to increased depression and anxiety? This study aimed to answer these questions, exploring reciprocal associations between depression and alcohol use and anxiety and alcohol use in girls from ages 13 to 17.

Stopping Sexual Aggression: Alcohol Can Interfere with Good Intentions

Research Society on Alcoholism

The #MeToo movement that began in 2017 has increased attention to bystander training programs that encourage third-party witnesses to intervene (i.e., become involved in stopping aggression) in high-risk sexual situations. With limited information available on the effects of alcohol on bystander intervention in these situations, bystander training programs rarely train bystanders to intervene to prevent sexual aggression when they are intoxicated. This study tested the impact of alcohol on the likelihood and speed of intervention in witnessed sexual aggression by men who self-reported an intent to help strangers.
