Preventing Adolescent Risk Behavior in the Rural Context: An Integrative Analysis of Adolescent, Parent, and Provider Perspectives
Rishel, Carrie W.; Cottrell, Lesley; Kingery, Tricia
Journal of Family Social Work, v15 n5 p401-416 2012
Adolescent risk behavior remains prevalent and contributes to numerous social problems and growing health care costs. Contrary to popular perception, adolescents in rural areas engage in risky behaviors at least as much as youth from urban or suburban settings. Little research, however, focuses on risk behavior prevention in the rural context. This study integrates adolescent, parent, and provider perspectives related to adolescent risk behavior engagement and prevention to suggest promising prevention strategies for rural families and communities.
