Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2016/Underage binge drinking motivation
My topic is similar to your topic in a few ways (mine is illicit drug taking at music festivals ) and I came across of reference that I thought may be relevant to your topic. It was a study by Duff (2005) which talks about the normalization of drug taking in young people, claiming how it has become just a normal part of life and that such behaviour can no longer be classed as "delinquent" or "deviant" because so many "normal" members of society participate in such activities.
For your chapter, I thought it would be interesting to at least visit such a concept and think about whether normalization of binge drinking (i.e through the media/popular culture) could be motivational factor as to why we are seeing increasing numbers of binge drinking behaviour.
Here is the full reference of the article:
Duff, C. (2005). Party drugs and party people: Examining the ‘normalization’ of recreational drug use in Melbourne, Australia. International journal of drug policy, 16(3), 161-170. --U3100481 (discuss • contribs) 04:56, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Hello Great content you have! Your overview is very well written and is a nice introduction to the topic.
- In your headings, each word does not need to have a capital letter in front of it so instead of "Defining Binge Drinking" it should be "Defining binge drinking" James added this point in my discussion tab if you wish to look :)
- In your section Defining binge drinking, you have (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 2016) twice one sentence after the other, it's unnecessary to have too many of the same reference, 1 would be suffice :) I have noticed this a little bit throughout your chapter too.
- Another suggestion might be to add some coloured boxes maybe? To break the text up a little bit
