Overview

The debate of teenage pregnancy and parenthood continues to be a topical media and political issue, and a contested policy area. Covering the controversial issues, this book contributes to the debate, filling the gap in the current market. The strong chapter selection looks at areas such as:

  • education
  • social policy and welfare reforms in the UK and US
  • issues for young fathers
  • child sex abuse
  • girls with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

This is invaluable reading for those working on government strategies to reduce teen pregnancies and those working in sex education and youth care.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Michael Reiss, Institute of Education: "The subject is both topical and unlikely to fade away in the next few years. The chapter selection looks strong and the contributions from the US and Hong Kong are to be welcomed… Will be bought by … professionals and libraries. … will make a useful contribution to the literature…"

Ruth Chambers, Staffordshire University: "a new approach to the issues of teen pregnancy … a wide-ranging overview. Maybe scope for recommended reading on social work awards."
