The Effect of Extended Parallel Process Model on Sexual Self- Control of Female Adolescents in Aliabad Kotoul in 2020
Keywords:EPPM, sexual self-control, adolescents
Introduction: This study we aimed to examine the effect ofExtended Parallel Process Model (EPPM) on the
sexual self-control of female adolescents in Aliabad Kotoul in 2020.
Methods: This experimental study with two intervention and control groups was conducted on 50 secondyear
high school female students in Aliabad Katoul, who had been selected by simple random sampling
method. In the intervention group, 8 training sessions (45-60 minutes each) were carried out in groups of 6-7
people, based on the EPPM for 2 months. Data were collected in both groups before and after the intervention,
and then were analyzed by SPSS-16 statistical software using descriptive and inferential statistics.
Results: Independent t-test did not show a significant difference between the intervention and control groups
before the intervention (P = 14.14) in terms of the score of sexual self-control, but after the intervention, it
showed a significant difference (P <0.01) between the two groups. Also, ANCOVA test showed a significant
difference between the two groups by removing the pre-test effect (p <0.01, Eta = 0.64), so that the EPPMwas
able to increase the sexual self-control of samples in the intervention group.
Conclusion: Considering the effectiveness of EPPM, the results showed that if people understand that
they are at high risk of disease or health problem, they will be more sensitive towards performing high-risk
behaviors. Therefore, increasing awareness and creating sensitivity can play an important role in controlling
