Description

Background:
This scale can be used to assess refusal skills for sexual behavior. The scale was originally developed by Kasen and colleagues (Kasen et al., 1992).This scale has been validated on a sample of predominately Caucasian college students by Cecil and Pinkerton (1998). Only the subsection “Refuse Sexual Intercourse” is reported here.

Subscales:
The following subscales were identified by Cecil and Pinkerton (1998):
Refuse sexual intercourse: items 1-8
Question potential sex partners: items 9-13
Condom use: items 14-21

Reliability:
Internal consistency:
Cronbach alpha (refuse sexual intercourse) = 0.85
Cronbach alpha (question potential sex partners) = 0.80
Cronbach alpha (condom use) = 0.81 (Cecil and Pinkerton, 1998)
Internal consistency:
Cronbach alpha (whole scale) = 0.82 (Kasen et al., 1992)
