Document Number: 5110Reducing Underage Drinking: A Collective Responsibility - This electronic book is the result of a congressional mandate to develop scientifically based recommendations on how to most effectively reduce and prevent underage drinking. The work provides background on the characteristics and consequences of underage drinking, as well as a chapter that seeks to shed light on the social, cognitive, personality and other individual differences that lead some adolescents to begin drinking. Eight categories of programs or interventions were identified, with a chapter devoted to each. (Richard J.
