Through a careful evaluation of the literature and various social programs, contributors discuss the underlying social and behavioral implications of adolescent sexuality, and conclude with suggestions for ways to promote sexual responsibility.
"This book will be a valuable resource for specialists, both researchers and practitioners, and can be used effectively as supplementary reading in courses in adolescence or in sexuality. For specialists, it can provide summary reviews of important topics relevant to adolescent sexuality and sources of references for further study. For students, it can provide introductions to those topics and stimulate discussion in which instructors can amplify the materials."
