ABSTRACT

The purpose of the study was to investigate the effectiveness of Behaviour Techniques in the management of problem drinking of an adolescent and improvement in overall wellness. We used the questionnaire Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test(1971), Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale(Hamilton, 1959)in order to determine the level of anxiety, Beck Depression Inventory(Beck, 1961), and Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale (Rosenberg, 1965) in order to determine the level of Global Self-Worth indicating both positive and negative feelings about the Self. This is a case study of an adolescent of marine engineering college, Cochin College. The drinking problem of the subject was assessed by Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test and pre intervention assessment of anxiety, Global Self-Worth indicating both positive and negative feelings about the Self by using Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale, Beck Depression Inventory, and Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale respectively. The student was administered the Behaviour Technology Module and was reassessed after the period of eight weeks. The results of the study is statistically significant and indicates that the subject experienced reduction in problem drinking; significant improvement in overall wellness by decreasing in the level of anxiety and Global Self-Worth and had shown significant increase in Self-Esteem.
