Keep It Simple: A Lesson in Linking Teens to Health Care
Eisler, Alexandra; Avellino, Lia; Chilcoat, Deborah; Schlanger, Karen
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v11 n4 p331-344 2016
The "Keep It Simple" package, which includes a short animated film (available online for streaming or download), a lesson plan, and supporting materials, was designed to be used with adolescents ages 15-19 to empower them to seek sexual and reproductive health care, and emphasize the availability of long-acting reversible contraception (LARCs). The materials in the package can be used together to deliver a 45 minute educational session that provides information to teens about the sexual health services available to them at local health centers, their rights to obtain those services, and how they can link to high quality and adolescent friendly sexual health care. The animation can also be used as a standalone product. All components of the "Keep It Simple" package are available for free and are also offered in Spanish as "No te compliques." Contains a bibliography.
