PATRAO, Ana Luísa; MCINTYRE, Teresa  e  COSTA, Eleonora. Psychometric characteristics of self-esteem scale in mozambican women at sexual risk. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.3, pp.698-706. ISSN 1645-0086.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15309/14psd150311.

This study describes the results of the evaluation of the psychometric characteristics of Self-Esteem Scale (SES) (Rosenberg, 1965) in a sample of Mozambican women in sexual risk for HIV/AIDS. In this research participated 173 women in sexual risk (M age 24.68; SD=5.55). They were recruited from Gynecology Service of Central Hospital of Beira (Mozambique), by gynecologists, according to clinical criteria. The SES has high levels of internal consistency in the sample under study (Cronbach Alpha: 0.87) and a significant correlation with the general self-efficacy scale (r=0.19, p=0.01), which gives convergent validity. Thus, the SES demonstrated good psychometric characteristics in this Mozambican sample. These results are not conclusive in terms of scale validation in Mozambique, although it is an important instrument in terms of research and intervention within the framework of psychological assessment and the promotion of women's health, in this context.
