The Proximity Effect: The Role of Family Life in Shaping Children’s Knowledge about Alcohol and its Social and Health Implications is a presentation that Professor Gill Valentine gave at the Alcohol and Families Alliance meeting held in February 2015.
The presentation sheds light on the role played by family life and parenting in shaping children’s and young people’s knowledge of alcohol and social and health implications of alcohol use and misuse.
The presentation is based upon four main research papers:
- Family life and alcohol consumption: A study of the transmission of drinking practice, 2010 (Valentine, G., Jayne, M., Gould, M., Keenan, J.)
- Generational patterns of alcohol consumption: Continuity and change, 2010 (Valentine, G., Holloway, S., L., Jayne, M.)
- The proximity effect: The role of the affective space of family life in shaping children’s knowledge about alcohol and its social and health implications, 2014 (Valentine, G., Jayne, M., Gould, M.)
- Do as I say, not as I do: the affective space of family life and the generational transmission of drinking cultures, 2012 (Valentine, G., Jayne, M., Gould, M.)
