Evaluation of Positive Potential middle school program in rural northwest Indiana communities: findings from an innovative teen pregnancy prevention program : final impact report for a positive approach to teen health
The evaluation examined the impact of Positive Potential on middle school youth; specifically, 3 measures of risk avoidance sexual intercourse behavior (ever engaged; in past 12-months; and, in recent past 3-months); 4 measures of risk reduction sexual behaviors (non-use of condom; non-use of effective birth control with sexual intercourse in recent past 3-months; sex with multiple partners in lifetime, and oral sex). Available from the first author are the following evaluation outcome results between intervention and comparison groups: (1) 10 stage physical intimacy behavior hierarchy, for example, holding hands, touching above/below the waist, oral sex and sexual intercourse; (2) non-sexual risk behavior outcomes, and (3) positive youth development outcomes.
