A convenience sample of 159 African American women, 18-45 years old, was trained to perform breast self-examination (BSE) and was categorized according to the participants' cognitive style (monitors/blunters).
Participants were then randomly assigned to one of four groups differing in BSE maintenance strategy (self-management, positive reinforcement, both, or neither).
Self-reported monthly compliance with BSE was subseguently assessed during a 9-month period.
A significant interaction between maintenance strategies and cognitive style was found.
