Overview of the EditionThis edition of ReCAPP focuses on Male Involvement, the role supportive male partners play in improving the use of contraception and in reducing the risk of unintended pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
Information on this topic can be found in ReCAPP's Theories and Approaches section under Male Involvement, which contains theories (such as social cognitive theory) and approaches (such as male involvement) to adolescent pregnancy prevention that don't fit neatly into other established sections of the web site.
Check out the communication tools offered by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy for other web sites to use. Several newly developed "postcards" and "banners" deliver the message that adolescence should be a time for education and growing up, not pregnancy and parenthood. One of their most popular images features basketball star Grant Hill with a prevention message for young men.
