BENITES, Ana Priscila de Oliveira  and  SCHNEIDER, Daniela Ribeiro. Families and alcohol consumption in female adolescents: a systematic review. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.1, pp.145-152. ISSN 0102-7972.

Alcohol consumption by teenagers is a multi-determined phenomenon. Family relations play a prominent role in it and can be both a protection and a risk factor. Teenager girls have been changing their consumption pattern, becoming more and more similar to boys'. A bibliographic survey was carried out at Web of Science database, from 2006 to 2011, with the descriptors girls, alcohol and family, aiming to present a systematic review of the topic. Bibliometric data are shown, indicating a trend of growth in scientific production in the last years. The results are deepened through qualitative analyses of some articles. The role of emotional proximity with parents and parental monitoring is highlighted as protection factors for girls.

Keywords : Alcohol; adolescence; girls; family relations; risk and protective factors.
