Abstract

This study of children in grades five and six assessed the relationship between social and stress/coping motives and students' intentions to drink in junior high school. Whereas the two motives were not seen as separate by fifth graders, they were differentiated by sixth graders, for whom they were associated social motives more strongly than stress/coping motives with intentions to use alcohol. Implications for the design and timing of prevention programs are considered.
