SENSE OF COHERENCE, RESILIENCE AND ALCOHOL USE AMONG SLOVAK UNIVERSITY STUDENTS. A BRIEF UNIVERSAL DRUG USE PREVENTION PROGRAM
Languages of publication
The aim of this study was to explore the efficacy of brief universal drug use prevention program among university students. The changes (pre-and post-program) in scores of sense of coherence (SOC-13; Antonovsky, 1993), resilience (Notario-Pacheco et al., 2011), and alcohol use (AUDIT, Babor, Higgins-Biddle, Suanders, Monteiro, 2001) were explored (34 program participants, 75 students in control group). A statistically significant increase in comprehensibility and resilience, as well as a significant decrease of alcohol use from baseline to follow up measures were found following participation in the program among students in the experimental group. Findings of this study supported flexibility, a potential for changes in cognitive component of SOC, resilience, and alcohol use among university students who participated in short universal drug use prevention program.
