Abstract

Purpose The aim of this study was to determine the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the child sexual abuse knowledge/attitude scale for parents (CSAKAS). Design and Methods This methodological study was carried out with 193 parents in between February and May 2018. Findings The validity and reliability of the six-factors structure scale were confirmed. The Cronbach's alpha coefficient of the whole scale is 0.793, the item-total score correlations ranged between 0.341 and 0.719 and the test-retest coefficient was 0.841. Practice Implications The CSAKAS Turkish scale was found to be a valid and reliable tool that can be used to evaluate the knowledge and attitudes of parents about child sexual abuse.
