The portfolio has three parts: a systematic literature review, an empirical study and a set of appendices. Part one is a systematic literature review in which empirical literature relating to the sexual risk taking behaviour and sexual self-concept is reviewed and critically evaluated. It aims to present an understanding of how dimensions of sexual self-concept can influence sexual risk taking behaviours. Recommendations are made for future research and clinical implications are discussed. Part two is an empirical paper exploring the relationship between sexual self-concept, stigma and shame following a Chlamydia diagnosis. People attending a sexual health clinic for the treatment of Chlamydia were approached to participate in the study. Quantitative data were collected using a cross sectional design. The clinical implications and methodological limitations are also discussed and areas requiring further research are identified. Part three comprises the Appendices to support the work in the first two parts and a reflective statement of the research process.
