Dougherty, Barbara; Lindner, A. Frances
Intended for staff who maintain teen pregnancy and parenting programs and for those just beginning such programs, the strategies, instrument, and resource list provided in this document were generated by 150 educators and community service providers who are experienced with similar programs. Section A provides the following lists: (1) barriers to teen pregnancy and parenting programs; (2) what such programs need; (3) 48 program strategies for overcoming the barriers and obtaining what is needed; (4) barriers the teens face; (5) needs the teens have; and (6) 33 strategies for meeting those needs and overcoming the barriers. Section B offers help on conducting an inventory of program resources and an assessment of program participants' needs. Included is a 25-page "Teen Pregnancy and Parenting Program Inventory and Needs Assessment" instrument. Section C cites and annotates 63 pages of relevant print publications, software, videos, slides, and filmstrips. These resources are organized by media, and those that are print publications are also grouped by the topics they cover. Among the topics they cover are educational methods for career planning, self-help for teen parents, and current issues concerning women and the work force. (CML)
