This is a collaborative school- and community health centers-based sex and
contraception education intervention for teens between the ages of 13 and 19
years. The 12- to 15-hour pregnancy prevention program begins with two large-group,
lecture format presentations covering reproductive physiology, contraception
methods, and contraceptive effectiveness. During the remaining four sessions,
students participate in small group discussions that are designed to help teens:
(1) understand and personalize the risks and consequences of teenage pregnancy;
(2) develop and practice the skills that will make abstinence an easier decision
to implement; and (3) become more knowledgeable regarding contraception. The
sessions include games, role plays, and trigger films that encourage group
discussion. A field study of the intervention was conducted in both rural and
urban communities in Texas and California. Teens of diverse ethnicities recruited
from different agencies and schools participated. Participation in the program
was especially beneficial to males, leading to a delay in the onset of sexual
activity among male virgins, and to the use of more effective contraception
among male non-virgins. View
