Conflict and Challenge--Teen Programs Today.
Britton, Patti O., Ed.; And Others
Emphasis, Win 1985-86
This issue of Emphasis addresses the educator's role in confronting adolescent pregnancy by presenting articles on educational programs for adolescents which have been developed and/or implemented by Planned Parenthood affiliates. Programs are presented which attempt to provide information to adolescents or to the community; to change attitudes, such as changing young men's attitudes about responsibility for contraception; or to change behavior. Articles include: (1) "In Perspective" (Susan Newcomer)--people and programs in sexuality education; (2) "A Center for Change" (Sally Kohn and Pat Maloney)--an inner city teen pregnancy prevention program; (3) "Males: A New Market" (Joanne Rocco Bruno)--Planned Parenthood programs for men; (4) "Panel for Prevention" (Pat Lyden)--views on delaying sexual activity and using contraceptives responsibly; (5) "The Case for Counseling" (Ellen Taves) emphasizes personal history and relevant choices in the counseling process; (6) "A Community of Volunteers" (Margo Mills-Smith)--teen outreach program; (7) "Progress for Peers" (Cindy J. Biggs)--an Ohio Community-implemented high school education program; (8) "Close-Up: Doug Kirby" (Michael McGee)--an interview with the director of research at the Center for Population Options; (9) "The Clinic Connection" (Marcia Aslakson) describes a Michigan school-based teen health clinic; (10) "Accent on...Electronic Sexuality" tells of a Milwaukee forum that addressed the question of whether teen sexual attitudes and behavior are influenced by music; (11) "Humboldt Heralds FLE" (Randy Crutcher) focuses on a family life education (FLE) program in California; (12) "How to Say No" (Patricia Brogan and Patti O. Britton)) provides teens with the skills to say no to undesired sexual intercourse; (13) "A Cornucopia of Care" (Cathy Ahart) describes a program for helping teens and their families with practical support; (14) "Dallas Drama in Demand" (Elena Love) tells of a Texas teen theater troupe that improvises skits dealing with problems of peer pressure and teen pregnancy; and (15) "Courting Challenge" (Jaxie Farrell) discusses a Washington program taught jointly by Planned Parenthood and the Walla Walla office of Juvenile Court Services. A 25-page annotated bibligraphy dealing with topics such as sexuality education, contraception, parenthood, and reproductive health is appended. (NB)
