From the jacket:
Volume 8 of the Project MATCH Monograph Series, titled, Project MATCH Hypotheses: Results and Causal Chain Analyses, is now available through NIAAA's web site.
Project MATCH Hypotheses: Results and Causal Chain Analyses, 330 pp. NIH Pub No. 01-4238. 2001.
This volume is the first systematic and comprehensive treatment of causal chain analysis of interventions for alcohol problems. Causal chains are theory-based models of the change process underlying intervention effects. Causal chains specify a testable sequence of steps postulated to be necessary and sufficient occurrences leading to an intervention's effects. The Project MATCH design included causal chain testing for all of the tested hypotheses.
