Abstract:Conclusions. Perceived subjective norms as defined by long standing behavior theory may provide an alternative and potentially more promising intervention target---for this high-risk student population---than the current focus on correcting students' errors in estimating the amount of alcohol their peers consume. Results of this study also suggest fraternity men may respond favorably to intervention messages emphasizing second hand consequences of alcohol use. Perceived second hand consequences offer another possible point of leverage for positive social culture change to reduce high-risk alcohol consumption patterns among fraternity men and other targeted populations.
