The Effect of Sex Education with Disturbed Adolescents

  • David A. Crawford (a1) and Kevin Howells (a1)

Extract

The effects of a structured sex education programme on the knowledge and attitudes of a group of disturbed adolescent offenders with sexual problems were assessed. Sex education was found to improve sexual knowledge significantly, to lessen anxiety associated with sexual intercourse, and to produce a less anxious self concept. Sex education had no significant effect on sexual interest.
