Abstract

This study tested the validity and reliability of the Turkish translation of the Multi-Factor Attitude toward Condoms Scale in a sample of Turkish outpatient clients (N = 336). Internal consistency reliability was demonstrated by a Cronbach alpha of .82, and test-retest reliability was supported by a positive correlation between initial and retest scores (p < .05). Construct validity was supported by results of an exploratory factor analysis that yielded a three-factor solution, explaining 71.0% of the variance. The Turkish version of the scale was found to be valid and reliable.
