DIAZ NEGRETE, David Bruno; ARELLANEZ HERNANDEZ, Jorge Luis; RODRIGUEZ KURI, Solveig E.  y  FERNANDEZ CACERES, Carmen. Comparison of Three Risk Models of Harmful Use of Alcohol in Mexican Students. Acta de investigación psicol [online]. 2015, vol.5, n.2, pp.2047-2061. ISSN 2007-4719.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/s2007-4719(15)30022-3.

The aim of this study was to identify psychosocial correlates of harmful alcohol use among young Mexican students, and to comparatively prove the predictive validity of three theoretical models, each one capable to support the research of the problem and to guide the design of theoretically and empirically grounded preventive and treatment programs: a) the alcohol expectancies theory, b) the social learning theory by R. Akers, and c) the planned behavior theory. Findings indícate that these three models are appropriate predictive models for harmful alcohol use in the studied group. The highest predictive weight belongs to positive expectancies associated to the effects of alcohol, followed by alcohol use among friends, low risk perception, and self-control of alcohol drinking as a protective factor. Findings suggest the convenience of the application of a composed multi-varied algorithm, integrated by factors and variables extracted from the three models.
