Reducing the Risk: Building Skills To Prevent Pregnancy. Student Workbook.
Barth, Richard P.
This document is a student workbook for a program which focuses on ways to prevent teenage pregnancy by teaching and practicing the interpersonal skills necessary to help teenagers abstain or utilize effective contraception methods. It includes worksheets, homework assignments, role plays, quizzes, handouts, and forms to be used in conjunction with the program. Role plays present situations in which teenagers are at risk of pregnancy, sometimes with the full situation disclosed and others which ask the students to complete the responses of the teenagers. Homework assignments include talking to parents about contraception and teenage pregnancy, shopping for contraceptives, visiting a clinic, and imagining how a sexually transmitted disease would affect the teenager's life. Worksheets are provided on the meaning of abstinence to the student, handling crisis situations, birth control myths and truths, self-examination about avoiding pregnancy, and sticking with contraception and abstinence. Handouts are included on possible delaying tactics, situations requiring decisions about contraception, and a vignette about the changes in a girl and boy's relationship. Quizzes are presented on effective refusals and refusing or delaying sex. (ABL)
