Analysis of a Field Study: Programs, Services, and Approaches Toward the Reduction of Adolescent Pregnancy. Final Report.
Moore, Audrey
This field survey relative to adolescent pregnancy was undertaken through site visits and interviews. Data indicated that: (1) while many people are carrying out excellent programs and activities, the numbers are small compared to the need; (2) in some types of services the old tried-and-found-wanting approaches are perpetuated; (3) in some, helping professionals won't help adolescents; (4) certain areas of the country offer very few services in the face of obvious need; (5) there are resources as yet untapped--older people and adolescnets themselves; (6) financial and human resources have not been used to their best potential; (7) media resources have not been used beyond a small per cent of their capacity to affect knowledge and attitudes for healthy change; (8) no national priority for youth and no national policy for youth or the family exists; (9) one of the greatest needs appears to be in the area of interacting and communicating as caring human beings; (10) behavioral research has shown some new facets to human behavior in this rapidly changing society and there are new stresses on youth and their families as a result of these changes.
