Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Alcohol abuse and sexual behaviors among Latino adolescent males
by Macias, Jonathan, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 57; 1499268
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to examine alcohol abuse and sexual behaviors among Latino adolescent males. The study utilized secondary data from the National Institute of Health, Youth Behavioral Risk Survey of 2007. Findings suggest that among Latino adolescent males there is a statistically significant relationship between alcohol abuse and risky sexual behaviors including onset of first sexual experience and condom use at the last sexual experience. In addition, results indicated that alcohol abuse and multiple sexual partners was approaching statistical significance. Implications of the study on social work practice, policy and future research are discussed in latter chapters.
