dc.description.abstractThe use of alcohol among African-American college students has been neglected by researchers because of comparative reports of low alcohol use among this population. However, this provides important clinical information that may guide researches and clinicians related to protective factors against alcohol use among African-American students. The current study attempts to examine the context of alcohol use among African-American college students. Logistic regression analyses were performed in order to predict variables which might serve as protective factors. It was found that the context of beliefs regarding the use of alcohol as well as the presence of high levels of social support, are predictive of alcohol use.
