Katz, Roger C.; And Others
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v24 n1 p117-31 Feb 1995
Knowledge and attitudes about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) were compared for 167 public high school students, 166 incarcerated adolescents, and 151 emotionally disturbed adolescents. AIDS knowledge was moderately high for all, but misunderstandings about transmission and high-risk behaviors were noted. Teenagers with emotional problems were the least informed. (SLD)
