1. According to Rolando et al. (2012), “alcohol socialization is the process by which a person approaches and familiarizes with alcohol learns about the values connected to its use and about how, when and where s/he can or cannot drink.” Based on the focus group findings and understanding what the first drink means in socialization processes of both Italy and Finland; describe your own socialization process here in the U.S. or where you were raised. Include the attitudes connected with your socialization processes. Respond to two posts identifying the values that you experienced in your own life and how the experiences effected your own drinking patterns.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2016), Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans. The term "intimate partner violence" describes physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. Nearly 38 percent of IPV perpetrators have significant alcohol problems (NIAAA).

Please respond to two students who have selected different topics under the power and control wheel and provide examples of the topic that they have selected. Help them to better understand their selection from your point of view. **Please note, the power and control wheel does include gender biases.** This is only one example of a power and control wheel, but the concepts are consistent with other frameworks.
