Addressing Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health across Different Socio-Ecological Contexts
Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Adolescent sexual and reproductive health issues, including teen dating violence, continue to be important targets for public health interventions. Although individual-based health education remains a viable strategy, tactics that address higher levels in the socio-ecological framework are also needed to make greater impact. This session presents four interventions that each take a different approach to adolescent sexual and reproductive health. Attendees exposed to these perspectives as well as their strengths and weaknesses should gain a better understanding of how frame and address the sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents in various contexts within the socio-ecological framework.
Session Objectives: Describe four different intervention approaches to addressing adolescent sexual and reproductive health.
Describe protective and risk factors of adolescents relevant to their transition into young adulthood, specifically as they relate to sexual and reproductive health.
Identify the needs of adolescents transitioning to young adulthood within a socio-ecological framework, specifically as they relate to sexual and reproductive health.
