Abstract

The current study investigated the relationship between social anxiety and alcohol use in a student population through 5 dimensions: overall harmful alcohol use, alcohol consumption, drinking behaviour, adverse reactions and alcohol-related problems, based upon previous research in this area that has demonstrated inconsistent findings in regards to student populations. This was achieved through the use of a questionnaire adopting the SIAS and AUDIT scales, which was completed in full by 76 participants, all of whom were current students at the University of South Wales. Results of 5 Pearson product-moment correlations found no relationships between social anxiety and the 5 dimensions of alcohol use, which did not support the hypotheses. Further exploratory analyses were carried out to aid clarification of these results. Methodological reasons as well as theoretical reasons are discussed for these findings, as well as future directions and important implications of the study.
