Promoting Healthy Development and Reducing Risk of Substance Use, Pregnancy, HIV/STI Among Adolescent Young Women Involved With the Juvenile Justice System

Promoting Healthy Development and Reducing Risk of Substance Use, Pregnancy, HIV/STI Among Adolescent Young Women Involved With the Juvenile Justice System

Includes a Live Web Event on 04/16/2024 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

Drawing on research and practice experience from both a social work and adolescent medicine perspective, this webinar will present research, best practices and developmental considerations when working with adolescent young women whose lives may interact with the juvenile justice system or courts. The presentation will start with research contrasting current adolescent substance use trends post-COVID with trends in a recent sample of young adolescent women who are justice involved, while highlighting the unique needs of these youth based on prior research. An adolescent medicine perspective will then be provided concerning the risks of pregnancy and HIV/STI and best practices and considerations with this population. Current gender-responsive interventions for this population will be described, with a specific focus on the development and testing of the CHOICES-TEEN intervention, a bundled risk reduction Telehealth intervention designed to reduce the risks of substance-exposed pregnancy (alcohol and marijuana) and HIV/STI.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the unique overlapping needs, contextual factors, substance use, and sexual risk behavior trends of adolescent young women involved with the juvenile justice system or courts.
  2. Identify best practices and developmental considerations when working young women who are justice involved, with particular attention to substance use and sexual health. 
  3. Understand the current empirical evidence supporting various gender-responsive interventions for young adolescent women involved with the juvenile justice system or courts.
