Description

Throughout three studies I investigated the relationship between self-control and risk-taking, focusing on drinking behavior among college students. I explored the relationship between both trait and state self-control and risk-taking and drinking, as well as examined possible mechanisms of this relationship. I also explored whether self-affirmation or a construal-level manipulation could serve as a possible intervention in reducing alcohol consumption among college students.
