Current Research on Adolescence and its Program Implications.
Cvetkovich, George; Grote, Barbara
This paper discusses program implications of research on adolescents. A brief historical review of teenage sexuality is presented in order to put current information in perspective. The present increase in teenage fertility is seen as part of a larger epidemic failure of socialization. A number of recent studies are reviewed and synthesized, especially in relation to the question of whether sex education or contraceptive programs have a reactive effect, by promoting early experimentation and irresponsible sex. Teenage women's method and frequency of contraceptive use is also discussed. Recommendations are given for the kind of clinic service desired by most women, teenage and adult. The value of using available research information about adolescent sexuality for making service and policy decisions is emphasized. (Author/BP)
