This updated and revised edition provides social workers with research-based information necessary to develop successful teen pregnancy prevention programs. The author draws upon wide, multi-disciplinary literature from psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, medicine, and public health to provide 'best practice' applications for effective social work intervention. The new edition also contains information about STIs and HIV/AIDS risks in addition to the risk of pregnancy. The authors present current research on the efficacy of abstinence-based programs, the sexualization of children, contraception, pregnancy resolution outcomes, and secondary prevention. Also discussed in this title are issues of cultural competence in practice.
