Main Description
Here is an invaluable resource to help professionals understand the broad range of issues and challenges that adolescents face as they grapple with their sexuality. This highly informative volume addresses the most compelling issues of adolescent sexuality. Sexual orientation, acquaintance rape, new social roles, and sexually transmitted diseases are among the numerous topics that social workers confront daily in helping adolescents define and seek solutions to their sex-related concerns. Adolescent Sexuality highlights the importance of innovative approaches and client empowerment in prevention and treatment programs for youth, particularly in this era of declining federal support. This timely volume reveals the reluctance of adolescents to confide in their families; therefore, experts offer valuable suggestions for social workers to strengthen and use community resources--the church, family planning agencies, schools, and support groups--to supplement the efforts of many families.
