Comprehensive Adolescent Pregnancy Services: A Resource Guide.
Holt, K. A., Ed.; Langlykke, K., Ed.
This resource guide was compiled to assist state, county, and community personnel in developing comprehensive adolescent health programs which address adolescent pregnancy, prevention, and care. It includes a broad range of topics with materials suitable for both professionals and consumers and for use by regional, state, and local government agency staff and in clinical, social service, community-based, residential, and educational settings. Included are resources dealing with the prevention of adolescent pregnancy as well as resources dealing with pregnancy care and parenting education. The guide is divided into three main sections: Publications and Resource Materials, Organizations, and Commercial Educational Resources. Materials in the Publications and Resource Materials section are organized under the following headings: General Information; Data, Needs Assessment, and Program Evaluation; Pregnancy Prevention; Prenatal Care; Prenatal and Infant Nutrition; Substance Use During Pregnancy; Parenting and Child Care; and Adoption. Organizations were included in the guide if their primary focus was on adolescent pregnancy; adolescent health and well-being in general; adolescent reproductive health and pregnancy prevention, such as family planning and sexuality education; or related issues, such as families and parenting, adoption, prenatal care, substance abuse, and nutrition. To help readers identify specific resources more quickly, symbols are included in the margins of the guide which indicate if the material is suitable for consumers, in a curriculum format for use in a classroom setting, available in languages other than English, or available in a videotape format.
