What do we know? What can we do? Putting research into practice in adolescent sexuality

Anne Mitchell

This paper looks at the challenges and rewards of putting research about adolescent sexuality, beliefs and behaviours into practice in schools and suggests some ways forward in the current challenging climate. Since its inception nearly 15 years ago the Australian Research Centre In Sex, Health and Society has had a dedicated Unit for putting research into practice. Adolescent research, both five-yearly national studies of young people in secondary school and two research studies on same sex attracted young people, have provided an ongoing evidence base for a number of practical initiatives which relate to sexual health promotion for young people and to developing programs for secondary schools.
