Transitional Instability, Psychological Health, and Sexual Risk Taking among College Students
Bowers, Jill R.; Segrin, Chris
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v54 n4 p400-414 2017
This study examined the effects of transitional instability on college students' (n = 402) psychological distress and sexual risk taking at two different time points over one year. Tested through structural equation models, the data revealed transitional instability had significant positive effects on psychological distress and sexual risk taking and an indirect effect on increased psychological distress through self-doubt. Utility of these findings for developing programs that promote health and safety on college campuses are discussed.
