STRACT : In today's world, people are less concerned about
smoking behavior in adolescents. It is therefore important
to determine the ability of adolescents in realizing control
over their health, then express it in behavior. The research
objective was to test empirically the relationship between
health locus of control and assertive behavior in adoles-
cents who smoke. Conducted a quantitative approach with
a questionnaire. Sample of 48 students who smoked in SMK
X. Health locus of control scale was adapted from the Mul-
tidimensional Health Locus of Control Scale by Wallston,
Wallston and DeVellis (1978). There are three dimensions
of internal health locus of control, powerful others health
locus of control, and chance health locus of control. As-
sertive behavior scale is based on aspects of assertive behav-
ior Rathus Nevid (1983). Hypothesis testing using the test
of Karl Pearson product moment correlation. The study
is the correlation coecient and signicance 0056 0352 (p
= 0.05) for IHLC and assertive behavior, which means the
relationship is signicant. The correlation coecients and
signicance -0260 0037 (p = 0.05) for PHLC and assertive
behavior, which means a signicant relationship but the re-
lationship is negative. Signicance of the correlation coef-
cient of -0104 and 0240 (p = 0.05) for the CHLC and as-
sertive behavior, which means the relationship is signicant.
It can be concluded that no signicant association between
powerful others health locus of control and assertive behav-
ior in adolescents who smoke, where the higher powerful
others health locus of control, the lower the assertive be-
havior in adolescents who smoke. Penamaan File: 10507268
