How accurately do people perceive the drinking of others? Why do people say alcohol makes them more talkative, outgoing, or social when the science clearly shows that it is not due to alcohol? The answers to these questions (and others) will be discussed during this webinar with a focus on prevention opportunities, the important role of parents, and time for questions from participants.
