Research BriefHispanic Children & FamiliesFeb 1 2014

An interdisciplinary team of social scientists at Child Trends used multiple research methods to identify promising approaches to reduce early childbearing among Latino adolescents. This work included a review of research studies, a scan of intervention programs, focus groups with adolescents, interviews with parents and with program designers and program staff, as well as analyses of national data bases. In this research brief, we synthesize the results across these various research methods to identify major findings and implications for teen pregnancy prevention efforts for Latinos.
