Unprotected sexual contacts are life-threatening to adolescents. Sex education and promotion of protective means should be provided to those who become sexually active (Geisler, 2015).
Although the majority of sexually active teens use condoms, this does not ensure total protection from STDs. A lot of them are sexually active in school and have had over 5 partners by 20 (Geisler, 2015).
The majority of HIV cases are found in bisexual and gay adolescents. The distribution of the infected by gender is mostly equal (Idele et al., 2014).
The most wide-spread besides HIV include chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. While the first and the second ones are prevalent in teenage girls, syphilis is more common with boys (Workowski & Bolan, 2015).
It is not common to discuss the problem with parents or doctors. Neither is the problem addressed by schools (Murray et al., 2014).
Miami offers numerous community programs. Most of them are aimed at troubled teens.
The effectiveness of the resources for the community is high. Programs decrease STDs by 4-9% annually.
The selected group consists of 13-19 school students. The focus is on those who are sexually active.
Students must know the statistics of STDs’ occurrence to be convinced to undergo screenings. They also need to know what support they can receive.
The major problem to be solved by education is the lack of information. Second, it should make teenagers more open with their parents.
Since all students demonstrated different attitudes to the problem, this style was the most appropriate.
Behaviorism presupposes that learners’ conduct can be influenced by negative and positive incentives. This leads to changes in the observable conduct.
Behavior theories imply establishing a close connection to students. That allows changing their conduct without forcing them into it.
It is important to have a holistic picture of the problem. A teacher must be able to answer all students’ questions.
Students must come out with appropriate conclusions about STDs. This is supposed to prevent new cases of infection.
The audience’s range of reactions was different. It started from shyness and unwillingness and progressed to active participation.
Older teens demonstrated higher involvement. Girls were more eager to discuss the problem.
Teaching on the topic increased my awareness of STDs. Moreover, I learned how to communicate health issues to adolescents.
