High-risk Drinking, College Students, Behavioral Science Theory
This study assessed the Integrated Behavioral Model’s (IBM) utility in explaining high-risk drinking among college students. A total of 356 participants completed a four-page questionnaire based on the (IBM) theory and their drinking behavior. The results from a path analysis revealed three significant constructs (p<0.05) which predicted intentions to engage in high-risk drinking: experiential attitude (0.34), injunctive norms (0.23), and self-efficacy (-0.28). The IBM explained approximately 45% and 26% of variance in intentions and high-risk drinking, respectively. Although limited in its use thus far, the IBM shows promise in its application r
