Psychological perspectives on alcohol: Visions for the future


The Handbook of Psychological Perspectives on Alcohol provides a wide ranging treatment of psychological research applied to alcohol consumption in multiple social contexts authored by an eminent cast of contemporary international researchers. This chapter summarises the main messages arising from the Handbook, reflects on what is currently known derived from psychological inquiry, considers where the gaps in knowledge lie, and sets out an agenda for future research to assist in filling these gaps. Specifically, four broad themes arising from the research presented in this Handbook are identified, and the state of the research and avenues for future research under each outlined: samples, methods, theories and applications.
