Fathers Raising Responsible Men: Teen Pregnancy Prevention for Adolescent Males
Project Goal: This project aimed to develop, evaluate, and disseminate a teen pregnancy, STI, and HIV prevention program specifically designed for ethnic minority adolescent males. This intervention was designed to facilitate important paternal parenting behaviors that influence adolescent decision-making. We used a novel, theoretically-based intervention highlighting the important and influential role that fathers have on the development of adolescent males. The goal of this study was to reduce adolescent male sexual risk behavior and to further develop the scientific evidence and intervention options targeted specifically to the teen pregnancy prevention needs of ethnic minority adolescent males.
