Teen Sexual Behavior. A Leader's Resource of Practical Strategies with Youth.
Berne, Linda A.; Wild, Pamela
The purpose of this book is to assist leaders in a variety of settings to address young people on the critical issues of teenage sexuality. The units are presented in a sequential pattern which covers teenage sexual behavior as it naturally evolves. Detailed information and precise directions for presenting the lessons are featured. The curriculum is not value free. The philosophical basis of the book is upon abstinence, although it is recognized that sexually active teenagers are ethically entitled to bias-free assistance in minimizing negative consequences. Major value positions related to abortion are identified. A strong family life education unit focuses upon the rewarding nature of adult sexual relationships in healthy contexts. (JD)
