Abstract:
Psychometric Properties of the Modified Sexual Self-Schema Scale (M-Sss) in Young Adult Thai Women

There is evidence that the sexual self-schema influences sexual behavior. Furthermore, absence of a sexual self-schema may make young women vulnerable to unplanned sexual encounters. Young Thai women may not have the opportunity to form a sexual self-schema because they have very little education about sexuality, and it is inappropriate to discuss sexuality in Thai culture. To date, researchers have been unable to explore the sexual self-schema of young Thai women because a psychometrically sound instrument does not exist. This study (in progress) focuses on evaluating the psychometric properties of a scale to measure sexual self-schema (M-SSS) among young Thai women. A total of 413 female undergraduates from five universities in Thailand completed the M-SSS and an additional group of five instruments. Factor analysis will be performed to evaluate the underlying dimensional structure of the M-SSS and establish construct validity. A correlational approach will be used for criterion-related validity. Reliability will be explored using internal consistency and test-retest reliability analyses. The expected outcome of the study is a valid and reliable measure of sexual self-schema that is relevant to Thai women. This instrument will be used in the next phase of the research, which will focus on exploring relationships among sexual self-schema, unplanned encounters, and unsafe sex. It may then be possible to develop and test nursing interventions tailored to individuals' sexual self-schemas.
