Description

Background:
The scale below can be used to assess self-efficacy for sexual discussion among adolescents (Lux & Petosa, 1994). This is a subscale of the Health Belief Model scale. The remaining scales found in Lux and Petosa (1994) can be used to assess constructs from the Health Belief Model and Social Cognitive Theory among adolescents. The sample consisted primarily of 452 African American and White incarcerated youth between the ages of 13 and 18.
