The Relational-Behavior Model: A Pilot Assessment Study for At-Risk College Populations
Chandler, Donald S., Jr.; Perkins, Michele D.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the First Annual Psychological Research Symposium (Paul Quinn College, Fall 2007)
This pilot study examined the relational-behavior model (RBM) as an HIV/AIDS assessment tool for at-risk college populations. Based on this theory, a survey was constructed to assess the six areas associated with HIV/AIDS prevention: personal awareness, knowledge deficiency, relational skills, HIV/STD stigmatization, community awareness, and health distrust. Based on the pilot sample, a descriptive profile analysis suggested high levels of health distrust and knowledge deficiency. An exploratory correlational analysis also suggested gender differences in relational skills and HIV/STD stigmatization. Additional studies examining the validity and reliability of the RBM survey was discussed. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
