WEBINAR: Love Notes: A Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program that Actually Prevents Teen Pregnancy
January 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In this webinar, Dr. Anita Barbee, will discuss the results from the original random control trial in Louisville testing the efficacy of Love Notes. She will focus on how Love Notes actually reduces the chance of pregnancy for youth by 46% over those in the control group 12 months after instruction. (These results were recently published in the peer reviewed journal, Family Relations.)
You will learn about some of the mediators that led to that outcome, which were emphasized more in Love Notes than another comprehensive sex education program. She will cover how negative attitudes about teen pregnancy and endorsement of the success sequence may be key in preventing teen pregnancies.
Dr. Barbee will also dive into why Love Notes worked so well with a Black youth population given the ecology in which those participants live. Implications for practice will be discussed.
Objectives: Participants will learn:
- About contents of Love Notes that likely impacted results.
- The attitudinal factors associated with reduced pregnancies.
- The how’s and why’s of teen pregnancy prevention.
Presenter: Anita Barbee, Ph.D., MSSW, Lead Evaluator and Program Director of CHAMPS!, Kent School of Social Work and Family Science at University of Louisville
