Adolescent Sexual Behavior and Childbearing



December 1992 | 143 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The topic of adolescent sexual behavior and childbearing at once entails multiple issues related to sexual activity, development, and parenting--each with its own sweeping consequences. Adolescent Sexual Behavior and Childbearing integrates current findings to provide a comprehensive approach to this topic by examining research from diverse perspectives. Discussions of the biological, sociocultural, and interpersonal forces and influences impinging on adolescents are thoughtfully delivered--and patterns of sexual activity, contraceptive use, abortion, single-parenthood, adolescent relationships, and prenatal care are carefully delineated. Interventions to prevent adolescent pregnancy are also provided, making this a resource that yields a powerful statement of the issues for research and social policy. "This is a book that should find a place in the working libraries of all persons interested in adolescent sexuality and pregnancy prevention." --Journal of Perinatology
