|Title:||Measuring Adolescent Smoking Expectancies by Incorporating Judgments About the Expected Time of Occurrence of Smoking Outcomes||Contributor(s):||Hine, DW (author); Tilleczek, K (author); Lewko, J (author); McKenzie-Richer, A (author); Perreault, L (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1037/0893-164X.19.3.284||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/110||Abstract:||French and English Canadian adolescents completed a smoking expectancy questionnaire and 2 measures of current smoking status. Multiple regression revealed that beliefs about the expected time of occurrence of smoking outcomes explained unique variance in current smoking after controlling for judgments about the probability and desirability of these outcomes. In addition, the relationship between the perceived probability of the general costs of smoking and current smoking was moderated by beliefs about the expected time of occurrence of these costs. There was no relationship between perceived probability of general costs and smoking for adolescents who expected the costs to occur far in the future, whereas there was a significant negative relationship between these 2 variables for adolescents who expected the costs to occur soon after smoking. The authors' results suggest that it may be possible to increase the concurrent validity of traditional smoking expectancy measures by incorporating expected-time-of-occurrence judgments.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Psychology of Addictive Behaviors, 19(3), p. 284-290||Publisher:||American Psychological Association||Place of Publication:||United States||ISSN:||0893-164X||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 130
