Summary

Promoting Teen Health offers an overview of some of the most serious problems confronting today's young people and ways to address them through health promotion and education. The first part of the volume covers a broad range of teen health problems, including tobacco, alcohol, and other substance abuse; pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases; mental health problems; and youth violence. Each chapter addresses a specific problem, presenting recent demographic information concerning the problems discussed and strategies that have been shown to work. Resources are included for many of the problems addressed. Following a transition chapter that discusses factors associated with success in health education programs, the second section of the book describes several actual teen health promotion programs, along with the way they were funded, an evaluation of why they were successful, and a brief perspective from one of the participants.
