New Findings from the HHS Teen Pregnancy Prevention Evidence Review

Since 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has sponsored an ongoing systematic review of research on programs to prevent teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and associated sexual risk behaviors. Prior rounds of the review covered research released from 1989 through August 2015. The review team has now released updated findings to cover more recent research released from August 2015 to October 2016 including research on the Love Notes EBP Model.

Teen sexting often tied to past sexual abuse

Teens who share sexually explicit texts or emails — “sexters” — are more likely to have suffered sexual abuse than their peers, new survey results suggest. For some teenagers, “sexting may be a part of normal sexual development,” said study lead author Dr. Kanani Titchen. But for others, it “may be an indicator of an unhealthy romantic relationship or a history of sexual abuse,” said Titchen, a postdoctoral fellow at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in New York City.

Two behaviors linked to dropout rates in high school

A study published in the Journal of School Health examines how two behaviors – aggression and poor study skills – may be a factor in why some students do not finish high school.

Students who were identified in the high-aggression/low-study-skills group had a 50% dropout rate compared to students with low aggression and high study skills who had a dropout rate of less than 2%. The results highlight the importance of early interventions that combine academic enhancement and behavioral management (Ed Note: like relationship skills) for reducing school dropout rates.

Skills Employers Seek in New Hires

Employers are increasingly noting that soft skills (including relationship skills), in addition to academic and technical skills, are key to enabling employees to work successfully in an organization. Therefore, soft skills merit attention from schools. According to peer-reviewed research, research conducted by regional and national industry representatives, and a convening of regional employers in western Pennsylvania, employers look for communications, teamwork, problem solving, self-management, and motivation t skills in new hires.
