Examining the Effects of an Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program by Risk Profiles: A More Nuanced Approach to Program Evaluation.

J Adolesc Health 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

ETR Associates, Scotts Valley, CA, USA.

Purpose: The objective of the study was to examine whether latent class analysis (LCA) could (1) identify distinct subgroups of youth characterized by multiple risk and protective factors for early sexual initiation and (2) allow for a more nuanced assessment of the effects of a middle school program to prevent teen pregnancy/HIV/sexually transmitted infection.

Methods: LCA was applied to data from the baseline (seventh grade) sample of 1,693 sexually inexperienced students participating in a randomized controlled trial of It's Your Game…Keep It Real in Harris County, Texas. Multilevel analysis was applied within subgroups defined by the latent classes to assess for potential differential program effects. Read More

J Adolesc Health 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Department of Human Development and Family Sciences, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas.

Purpose: We identify trajectories of young women's willingness to refuse unwanted sex, assess racial, socioeconomic, and attitudinal variation across trajectory groups, and describe the sexual and relationship behaviors of different trajectory groups.

Methods: Panel data from the Relationship Dynamics and Social Life study facilitate a latent class analysis identifying trajectories of women's willingness to refuse unwanted sex, followed by bivariate analyses illuminating demographic, attitudinal, experiential, and behavioral correlates of each trajectory.

Results: Three trajectories emerge confident (stable high), moderate (slightly declining moderate), and reluctant (low-U). Read More

Methods: We included systematic reviews which considered at least one long-term condition and provided outcome data from adult services. Methodology of primary studies was not an exclusion criterion. Read More

J Adolesc Health 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.

Purpose: The aim of the study was to determine whether characteristics related to the school, shooter, and guns used are associated with school shooting severity (casualty rates, fatality rates, and likelihood of fatality).

Methods: We analyzed associations between individual-, school-, gun-level factors and school shooting severity in the United States from April 1999 through May 2018.

Results: Handguns were used in most school shootings (81%); however, substantially, more fatalities occurred when rifles (relative risk [RR] =14. Read More

Contextual Variation in Early Adolescent Childbearing: A Multilevel Study From 33,822 Communities in 44 Low- and Middle-Income Countries.

J Adolesc Health 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts; Harvard University Center for Population and Development Studies, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Purpose: Existing literature calls for a deeper examination into how local context influences adolescent sexual and reproductive health outcomes. We seek to describe individual and contextual variation in early adolescent childbearing (younger than 16 years) in 44 low- and middle-income countries by (1) examining the role of individual-level social disadvantage, (2) exploring the ecological influence of context at the country and community level, and (3) assessing whether ecological effects vary according to a woman's wealth.

Methods: We used nationally representative data from 33,822 communities in 44 low- and middle-income countries. Read More

J Adolesc Health 2019 Mar 1. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Centre for Health Equity, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, The University of Melbourne, Carlton, Australia.

We sought to test associations between gender-role attitudes and mental health among Australian adolescents.

Methods: Data were drawn from the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children, a nationally representative Australian study. Read More

J Adolesc Health 2019 Mar;64(3):292-304

Department of Global Health, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut.

Purpose: The purpose of this longitudinal study was to identify individual and interpersonal factors associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine series completion in a sample of low-income Latina/o adolescent girls and boys.

Methods: Caregiver-adolescent dyads (N = 161) were recruited from a rural Federally Qualified Health Center in southwest Florida when the adolescent (aged 11-17 years) received the first dose of HPV vaccine. Dyads completed a baseline assessment that measured demographic and cultural characteristics, past medical history, provider-patient communication, HPV knowledge, health beliefs about completing the series, and the adolescent's experience receiving the first dose.

Associations of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning-Inclusive Sex Education With Mental Health Outcomes and School-Based Victimization in U.S. High School Students.

J Adolesc Health 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences, Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Purpose: Homophobic school climates are related to increased victimization for sexual minority youth (SMY), leading to increased risk of adverse mental health outcomes. Interventions that promote positive school climate may reduce the risk of victimization and adverse mental health outcomes in SMY. This study explored whether lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ)-inclusive sex education is associated with adverse mental health and school-based victimization in U.

J Adolesc Health 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Division of Adolescent Medicine, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio.

Purpose: The aim of the study was to evaluate the experience of menstruating adolescents identifying as male or gender nonconforming with the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) as a method of menstrual suppression and compare to that of cisgender youth (CGY) using the LNG-IUS for noncontraceptive indications.

Methods: A retrospective chart review of gender minority youth (GMY), aged 12-22 years, who self-selected the 52 mg LNG-IUS for menstrual suppression between June 2014 and January 2018. GMY were then matched for age and time of insertion with CGY. Read More

Academic Expectations and Mental Health in Adolescence: A Longitudinal Study Involving Parents' and Their Children's Perspectives.

J Adolesc Health 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Public Health Sciences, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden; Centre for Epidemiology and Community Medicine (CES), Stockholm County Council, Stockholm, Sweden.

Purpose: We investigated parental academic expectations and their agreement with child expectations as predictors of offspring's mental health. We additionally analyzed whether these associations were moderated by parent-child relationship factors and whether similar associations were found when using aspirations as the predictor.

Methods: Dyads of parents and children (aged 13 years) in Sweden answered three annual surveys asking how far in education parents (or their children) expected to go (respondents' wave 1: N = 3,383, wave 2: N = 3,096, wave 3: N = 2,905). Read More

Contributions of Mainstream Sexual Media Exposure to Sexual Attitudes, Perceived Peer Norms, and Sexual Behavior: A Meta-Analysis.

J Adolesc Health 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

School of Family Life, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah.

Purpose: Decades of research have examined the impact of exposure to nonexplicit portrayals of sexual content in media. There is only one meta-analysis on this topic, which suggests that exposure to "sexy media" has little to no effect on sexual behavior. There are a number of limitations to the existing meta-analysis, and the purpose of this updated meta-analysis was to examine associations between exposure to sexual media and users' attitudes and sexual behavior.
