Adelson, Emiliya; Maitra, Shubhada; Nastasi, Bonnie K.
International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v5 n3 p167-177 2017
In India, girls face many challenges that pose a threat to their sexual health and psychological well-being. The authors explore sexual health from the perspectives of adolescent girls, mothers of adolescent girls, and service providers. Focus groups and interview data were analyzed to understand the unique and shared perspectives of stakeholders. Through the use of the deductive-inductive coding process, the authors identified themes and differences in perspectives. The findings reveal that girls, mothers, and service providers share an understanding of the importance of girls having access to sexual health information and the value of mothers disseminating information to their daughters.
