[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] [Purpose] The purpose of this study is to identify the characteristics of anthropophobic tendency among high school students to determine measures to be taken to support the students through the school health service.
[Methods] This study conducted a self-administered questionnaire investigation with 3,985 subjects who were in the first grade of all the public high schools (day schools with standard curriculum) in ?A? prefecture (58 schools), and who agreed to participate in our study after receiving detailed explanation about the study in writing.
[Results] A total of 3,073 responses (77.1%:1,313 boys and 1,744 girls) were analyzed. The scale for measurement of anthropophobic tendency consisted of six sub-scales: 1. worries about oneself and others; 2. worries about being unable to get on well in a group; 3. worries about being confused in a social situation; 4. worries about other persons? stares; 5. worries about being unable to control oneself; 6. worries about being tired of living, and the average scores are 14.4, 10.5, 13.0, 10.5, 13.1, and 11.3, respectively, with a total average of 72.9. It was inferred that girls had a stronger anthrophobic tendency than boys. Further, students who have specific complaints, email frequently, visit the health room frequently, have experience of being bullied or school refusal, have high self-esteem, have lower social skills were thought to have higher anthrophobic tendencies, while those subjects who have advisors, and have future dreams and goals were unlikely to have anthrophobic tendencies. The girls had significantly higher scores in the worries about oneself and others (p<0.01) and worries about being confused in a social situation (P<0.05) than the boys.
[Conclusion] These findings suggest the need to conduct a psychosocial factors assessment, teach social skills and provide opportunities for first grade high school students to express their future dreams and goals.
