Adolescent Pregnancy: Policy and Prevention Services

Synopsis

This study provides social workers with research-based advice for developing youth pregnancy prevention programs and policies that take into account young people's different levels of early sex, pregnancy, and parenthood experiences. Farber (social work, U. of South Carolina) also considers the special needs of children of teens, and the links between alcohol, drug use, early sex and pregnancy. Brown (social work, S. Carolina College) and Shapiro (social work and research, Bryn Mawr College) each contribute a chapter to the book. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
