  1. The relationship of assertiveness to college students' safer sex behaviors.

    Article - En anglais

    Educational programs designed to curtail the present sexually transmitted disease (STD) epidemic emphasize the role of assertiveness in reducing personal risk.

    This study investigated the relationship between assertiveness tendencies and safer sex behaviors in heterosexual college students.

    It was predicted that assertiveness would vary positively, and nonassertiveness negatively, with three types of precautionary behaviors: caution about engaging in sexual intimacy, inquiry about a potential partner's STD risk history, and frequency of condom use.
