Role-playing Refusal Skills

(The following are the directions.)

"Imagine that you have a couple of friends over to play video games. Your parents went out to dinner so you have the house to yourselves. One friends finds beer in the refrigeration. She suggests that you and your friends drink it. You know your parents will notice if the beer is gone."

1). Reread the list of refusal skills in Table 2. (This list includes refusal skills such as blaming someone else, giving a reason, ignoring the request of the pressure, leaving the situation, saying "no, thanks," saying no and meaning it, keep saying no, making a joke out of it, making an excuse, suggesting something else to do, changing the subject, and teaming up with someone.)

2). Apply each one of the refusal skills to the situation described above, and role-play each skill with a classmate.

(The following are the actual questions.)

3). Describe which refusal skill was the most effective.

A: Suggesting something else to do was the most effective refusal skill as, while other refusal skills either resulted in your friends drinking the alcohol and replacing it or as being seen as the enemy, this refusal skill draws your friends' attention elsewhere?

4). Write a description of the results.
(I am uncertain of what exactly it is asking me to write. Does it mean the same as the question above?)

  1. *Correction: A: Suggesting something else to do was the most effective refusal skill as, while other refusal skills either resulted in your friends drinking the alcohol and replacing it or as yourself being seen as the enemy, this refusal skill draws your friends' attention elsewhere, preventing them from both drinking and making terrible decisions?

  3. 4. By suggesting something else to occupy ourselves with, such as to play a recently purchased video game, the results were that my friends' attention was drawn away from this absurd suggestion and that I was able to prevent them from making wrong decisions?
