Young Adults' Contraceptive Practices: An Investigation of Influences.
Lowe, Candace S.; Radius, Susan M.
Adolescence, v22 n86 p291-304 Sum 1987
Investigated unmarried young adults' (N=283) contraceptive behaviors and attitudes. Results suggest that effective contraceptive behavior associated most strongly with respondents' perceiving relatively few barriers to their use of contraception, their maintenance of extensive interpersonal skills, and their regarding peer norms as consistent with effective contraceptive behavior. Findings underlined need for continuing education about sexuality and contraception. (Author/NB)
