PSY 225-0101 Week 6 Assignment: Teen Pregnancy Prevention Plan



For this
assignment, you will be creating a teen pregnancy prevention (or teen parenting)
plan.  The teen pregnancy prevention plan can focus on how to reduce
unplanned teen pregnancy, or can focus on how to improve teen parenting
efforts.  How you go about this is up to you, but it is important to use
the research when formulating your plan. Any variables you select
should be backed up by research. In this paper you will:

 

  1. Describe several facets of your
    plan: what variables (e.g., parental monitoring) will you choose to focus
    on and why (e.g., higher parental monitoring has been shown by the
    research to lower teens' risk of adolescent pregnancy). 


 

  1. You will also discuss how you
    would attempt to effect those variables (e.g., educating parents on how to
    effectively monitor without being overprotective, since that seems to
    increase teens’ risk).


 

  1.  Finally, you will discuss
    how you would implement such a program logistically (e.g., who
    specifically would you target for your program and why?  Where would
    this program be based?).  


 

You must
use scholarly sources, such as class notes, outside journal
articles and/or text to formulate your response. Use a minimum of four
scholarly resources, two of these being peer-reviewed journal articles.

 

Your plan
should be written in paragraph form (not in bullet points). Your plan should
have a minimum of 1,000 words, but you will not be penalized for going over the
word limit.

 

Prepare
this assignment according to the guidelines found in the GCU Style Guide,
located in the Student Success Center.
