About the Course:

The transition to college involves major individual and contextual change in every domain of life; at the same time, heavy drinking and associated problems increase during this transition. A developmental contextual perspective encourages the examination of alcohol use and heavy drinking in relation to normative developmental tasks and transitions and in the context of students’ changing lives. Links between developmental transitions and alcohol use and other health risks are discussed in light of five conceptual models. The article reviews normative developmental transitions of adolescence and young adulthood, focusing on the domains of physical and cognitive development, identity, affiliation and achievement. Course materials are found on pages 54-70 using Adobe toolbar page finder.
