impact on condom usage
Impact on Condom Usage

Return to National Average suggests last year was abnomal

why pregnant
Why Pregnant?
  • Having sex to have a baby begins at 1% (7th grade) and grows to 7% (start of 9th), then goes to 5%
  • Trend is upward
  • Consistent with focus group findings that “intentional” pregnancies are happening earlier
  • Clearly a socially desirable activity in some circles early, not later
focus group results
Focus Group Results
  • Getting pregnant is NOT seen as a negative consequence
    • All teen moms had access to condoms and, in many cases, other forms of birth control but chose not to use it
    • Most pregnancies occur in a “serious” relationship so protection against STDs is not a concern

Girl, 15, Shot at Party

    • Shooting occurred at 3:30 a.m.
    • Girl was pregnant
  • Could promote condoms and birth control, but until pregnancy is viewed as a negative consequence, behavior won’t change
  • Keeping high school message in only health is not enough
  • We are losing opportunities to reach kids, especially in middle school
  • If we can’t reach parents, too, then we are going to continue to face strong challenges
best practices from research
Best Practices from research
  • Motivate, Educate, Prepare
    • Offer reasons why
    • Must be medically accurate
    • Improve decision making overall
  • Teachers have to believe in & be comfortable with subject
  • Reach parents and involve them in the conversation
  • Include community service
  • Don’t stop messaging – continue through HS
  • Recognize power of Developmental Assets
  • Take over teaching the curriculum
  • Spread out delivery
  • Exhibit local administrator support
  • Find a way to reach more High School students
  • Reach parents more regularly
  • Seek new media channels since no new funding is available
  • Involve peer resources
