Pregnant Adolescents: A Review of Literature with Abstracts 1960-1970.
Baizerman, Michael; And Others
This is a review of literature (with abstracts) dealing with adolescent pregnancies. Most of the programs developed to meet the needs of the pregnant adolescent are relatively new. Therefore, the literature which has been published on adolescent pregnancy is heavily weighted with articles which demonstrate the size and kind of problem, not with evaluative research of these programs. The articles which originate from various helping professions have one of two foci: A total program in progress or a particular service or treatment model recently tried; or one or more cases and the services given to them. From this review of articles, it can be concluded that we must await evaluative studies of these programs recently funded and now in progress. (Author/WS)
