My sincere thanks to Dr GhaithAl Badri for pointing out an error in the article I published on Galenic Medicine in fATMS
fune 2013 which mistakenly referred to an image of a book as a 'Persian Galenic text'.
Two instruments were used in this study to collect pretest and posttest data: the Self-Acceptance Scale (SAS; Berger, 1981) and the Female Attitudes Toward Men Scale (FATMS).
The FATMS was constructed and designed by the first author.
The pretest packet included (a) an informed consent sheet, (b) a release form giving permission to participate in the study, (c) the SAS, and (d) the FATMS. Group assignment reflected cohort groupings on an alternating basis.
The second comparison concerned significant differences between and within the experimental and control groups regarding attitudes toward men as measured by scores on the FATMS. These comparisons were examined using a repeated measures ANOVA.
In summary, random group assignment yielded comparable demographic characteristics for participants in both the experimental and control groups in the study, ti he data analyses revealed no significant posttest differences between the control group and the experimental group regarding self-acceptance, as measured by the SAS, or regarding attitudes toward men, as measured by the FATMS. However, examination of within-group differences showed significant positive changes over time in the experimental group regarding self-acceptance and attitudes toward men.
