Question and answer
Lifestyle disease/behavour and factors that contribute to the disease(high-risk sexual behavour amongst adolescent)
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. ] ] ] ]
