School Counselor, v44 n3 p185-97 Jan 1997
Examines adolescents' risk behaviors to determine whether these behaviors can predict adolescents' concern over contracting AIDS. Findings indicate that, regardless of whether adolescents engaged in the risk behaviors, they did not meaningfully differ in their concern about contracting AIDS. Results suggest that increased knowledge has not changed adolescent behavior. (RJM)
