The Evolution of a Therapeutic Group Approach to School-Age Pregnant Girls.
Braen, Bernard B.
This report evaluates the Young Mothers' Educational Development Program sponsored by the State University of New York, for pregnant girls between the ages of 16 and 21. The program provided needed services in the areas of obstetrics, pediatrics, education, social work, nursing, and psychology. The girls were Black, Caucasian, and Indian. Internalized values and preconceptions of staff members, reflecting a white, middle class orientation, became apparent during the course of the program. The report focuses on the inadequacies of initial approaches and assumptions and makes suggestions for improvements. (KG)
