Project Goal: The primary aim of this study was to further develop and pilot test a parent-based intervention, Families Talking Together, designed to reduce adolescent sexual risk behavior among Latino and African American youth using a clinic-based approach. Evidence from this study has led to DHHS endorsement of FTT in its registry of effective teen pregnancy prevention interventions.
