The authors examined variables (including new variables not included in the original theoretical formulation) that were correlated with each of the ARRM labelling, commitment and enactment stages, as well as the ability of early ARRM stages to predict later ARRM stages.
More recently, the ARRM has been investigated for its usefulness with populations of male heterosexual intravenous and non-intravenous drug users, HIV-positive heterosexual women, and incarcerated adolescents.
The purpose of the current investigation was to attempt a comprehensive evaluation of the predictive ability of the ARRM and to determine the extent to which proposed stage-specific predictor variables are related to ARRM stages.
MEASURES DERIVED FROM FACE TO FACE INTERVIEWING WITH THE SERBAS-HOM ARRM Enactment Stage Indicator: Current Sexual Risk Behaviour Index and Previous Sexual Risk Behaviour Index (SRBI-7) The measure of the enactment stage was a composite risk index derived from a subset of sexual activity variables obtained with the SERBAS-HOM.
The self-report scales served to operationalize the predictors of the ARRM stages.
The weeklong events which include participation from ARRM member organizations statewide, showcase contributions people with disabilities make to their community as well as encourages understanding and acceptance of people with all abilities.
Working with direct support professionals, people with disabilities are able to live independent lives where they can be productive, contributing members of their communities," said Bruce Nelson, Executive Director of ARRM.
