Abstract

Students at a large Midwestern university who violated the university code of conduct for first alcohol offense (N=62) were assigned to one of three conditions: (a) a monetary fine, (b) motivational interviewing in an individual session, or (c) motivational feedback through e-mail. Personal vs. Fine and Email vs. Fine resulted in significant interactions; (F1,26) = 6.95, p = .014; (F1, 24) = 4.79, p = .039) respectively. Results indicated that a personalized intervention session giving feedback from the Comprehensive Effects of Alcohol (CEA) (Fromme and Stroot, 1993) survey reduced beliefs of alcohol's effect and expectation.
