Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Background/aims: Extensive studies have found an association between parent - adolescent relationships and adolescents' alcohol use. However, only a few studies have been carried out in Sweden. Also, few studies have focused on 17-19 year olds or binge drinking. The aim of this study is to examine whether there is an association between perceived parent - youth relationship and binge drinking among 17-19 year olds in Stockholm, Sweden.
Theory: Social Development Model is a risk-focused prevention strategy which emphasizes the importance of social units, such as the family. SDM suggests that bonding occurs between the unit members through socialization processes which later acts as an informal control preventing adolescents from risk behaviors, such as binge drinking.
Method:Quantitative Method with secondary data from the "Stockholm survey" that includes the entire selected population of 17-19 year old students in Stockholm.
Results: The main results show that there is an association between certain aspects of the perceived parent - youth relationship and adolescent binge drinking. These aspects are; perceived parental monitoring (parents' influence on their child's free time) and perceived alcohol-specific rules. However, there is no association between perceived support and trust in the parent - adolescent relationship and adolescent binge drinking.
