Video: Karen Schelleman-Offermans about her dissertation: "Growing up getting drunk; development and prevention of adolescent alcohol use".


Produced by Guido Franken of the student video team
Alcohol use is the main cause of disease and death among adolescents in Europe. This is the first Dutch research that studied the effects of intensified enforcement of the age limits for alcohol use (formal control) and of making alcohol less available to adolescents via the social environment (informal control via parents and schools). Increasing the formal and informal control turned out to reduce the risk of intoxication in drinking adolescents. Given the upcoming decentralization of enforcement to municipalities, this means that the Dutch community must actively increase formal and informal control to reduce intoxication among adolescents.
This research was financed by NWO (ZonMW).
