Verbeteren narratieven de effecten?

Health education about alcohol for prevocational and special education students

Do narratives improve effectiveness?

Abstract

In this paper we present three studies that have been conducted amongst first year prevocational and special education students in which we examined whether narratives increase the effectiveness of health education materials. We compare various forms of narratives with standard expository materials. Results show short-term effects of exposure to health education materials on knowledge about the negative consequences of drinking alcohol. This effect is similar for materials with and without narratives. We did not find any effects on attitude or intention to drink alcohol.
