Factor Structure of the Adolescent Clinical Sexual Behavior Inventory
Wherry, Jeffrey N.; Berres, Ashley K.; Sim, Leslie; Friedrich, William N.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v18 n3 p233-246 2009
The primary goal of this study was to determine if the Adolescent Clinical Sexual Behavior Inventory-Self-Report conformed to the five-factor scale format that was initially used with a clinical sample that included adolescents referred for sexual abuse evaluations. Participants were 141 teenagers, ages 12-19 (M = 15.11, SD = 1.4), and their primary caregivers. None of the participants were referred for sexual abuse evaluations. Principal components analyses found a different though similar set of factors. This sample yielded three factors that were similar to the original five factors identified by Friedrich, Lysne, Sim, and Shamos (2004). That is, the measure was found to reliably assess adolescents' sexual knowledge, risky sexual behaviors, and concerns related to appearance. (Contains 3 tables.)
