Abstract (Summary)

This study aimed to examine the relationship between parental Expressed Emotion and college drinking patterns. Previous literature has tended to focus on people in treatment and or with clinical diagnoses. This is why this study aimed to expand the research on EE and the influences it may have on alcohol us with individual's not in treatment and without a diagnosis. Results indicated no relationship between college students' perceptions of their most influential person's display of expressed and the frequency or quantity of the participants' drinking. There was also no statistical relationship between perceived expressed emotion of participants' caregivers and the typical quantity of alcohol consumed by participants. Even though this was not predicted in the original hypotheses it is still interesting to note that there may be a relationship with the parent's display of expressed emotion characteristics (criticism) and the college students drinking patterns. Those who identified as living with their most influential person showed a marginally significant correlation between criticalness and drinking frequency.
