Abstract

ABSTRACT: A 10-week sex education program was designed for 55 students who were 14 to 15 years old. A 25-item check list of sexual concerns was given at the beginning and end of the course. The course had little effect in reducing the number of students expressing concern on listed topics, and several topics were of more concern after the course than before. The use of list to measure the impact of such programs is discussed.
