A Demonstration of Reorientation of Illegitimately Pregnant Teenage Girls Living in Rural Areas.
The aim of the project was to demonstrate a deliberate effort to reach illegitimately pregnant teenage girls, using the period before and after birth to help the girl achieve a future pattern of behavior that would meet her needs constructively. The period before the birth of the baby was used to reduce immediate life pressures, to provide a period of nurturing, and to plan educational, medical, and social services. After delivery, the girl was helped to carry out a plan for herself which included appropriate services. A second goal of the project emerged, the re-orientation of the community. (KP)
