Evaluating the Validity and Social Acceptability of Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Skill Measures
Kopp, Brandon; Miltenberger, Raymond G.
Child & Family Behavior Therapy, v30 n1 p1-11 Feb 2008
In research evaluating sexual abuse prevention programs, knowledge measures are typically used to assess the program's success. In other areas of research on child safety skills, however, skills are typically assessed through behavioral measures such as role-plays. The purpose of this study was to assess the validity and acceptability of a set of role-plays for assessing child sexual abuse prevention skills. To do this we sent surveys to 97 child protective service workers and asked them to rate the validity and acceptability of 35 scenarios for use with 10-year-old children. Data collected from the 23 surveys returned showed that, in terms of average rating, all scenarios were rated as realistic to very realistic on the validity dimension and acceptable to very acceptable on the social acceptability dimension.
