Question and answer
the practice of high-risk behaviour amongst the adolescence. describe the lifestyle disease/ behaviour and explain 5 factors that contribute to the disease?
Assessment of risky sexual behavior is somewhat challenging, particularly when adolescents are involved. [ [ Measurement of behavior usually relies on verbal reports, which can suffer from a number of biases, both intentional and unintentional. Sexual behavior is a sensitive topic that many adolescents find difficult to discuss with adults. Clinicians can facilitate such discussions by
adopting a nonjudgmental attitude toward the adolescent. Many adolescents are concerned that adults may strongly disapprove of their behavior, even if the same behavior is condoned among their group of peers.[22,23] Furthermore, sexual behavior is a sensitive topic to some clinicians, and they too may be uncomfortable exploring it with adolescents. Either of these barriers can hamper the flow of accurate information about the status of adolescents' sexual behavior. Not all barriers are incidental. Adolescents may actively construct barriers that make it difficult to accurately identify risky sexual behavior. ] ]

Relationships among risky sexual behaviors, other problem behaviors, and the family and peer context were examined for two samples of adolescents. Many adolescents reported behaviors (e.g., promiscuity or nonuse of condoms) which risked HIV or other sexually transmitted disease infection. Such risky behaviors were significantly intercorrelated. Consistent condom use was rare among those whose behavior otherwise entailed the greatest risk of infection. In both samples, an index of high-risk sexual behavior was significantly related to antisocial behavior, cigarette smoking, and illicit drug or alcohol use. Social context variables, including family structure, parenting practices, and friends' engagement in problem behaviors, were associated with high-risk sexual behavior. Finally, for sexually active adolescents, problem behaviors and social context variables were predictive of nonuse of condoms. Results were consistent across the two studies and regression weights held up well under cross-validation.
