PALACIOS DELGADO, Jorge Raúl. Psychometric estimation of a self-efficacy scale to avoid risk behaviors in Mexican adolescents. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2173-4712.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.psi.2014.11.004.

The objective of this research was to analyze the psychometric properties (structure, factorial validity, and reliability) of the scale for measuring self-efficacy to avoid behavior risk in Mexican adolescents. The sample consisted of 850 teenagers aged between 13 and 21 years, students of public high schools in Mexico City. The psychometric analysis showed six factors: self-efficacy to avoid tobacco consumption, alcohol drinking, drug use, sexual behavior, health injury, and antisocial behavior. The reliability analysis showed an optimal level for each factor. Additionally, the results indicated the factorial validity of self-efficacy to avoid behavior risk. The discussion analyzes the utility for self-efficacy assessment, and intervention development implications are suggested.
