[.67 Credit Hours] Christopher John Doyle, MA, LPC, LCPC “Benefits of Delaying Sexual Debut”
1. The importance of adolescent brain development as it relates to sexual risk avoidance as well as mass media's impact on the sexual risk behaviors of young people.
2. When considering a more rigorous standard for outcomes (placing a greater emphasis on longer behavioral outcomes while balancing the rigor of resarch design), this research review finds that sexual risk avoidance approaches to sexuality education compare better to the outcomes of comprehensive sexuality education than demonstrated in previous reviews.
3. Research documented in 35 years of scientific peer-reviewed literature shows that youth who delay sexual debut until marriage experience better health outcomes in a variety of health areas (physical, emotional/psychological, financial, and relational), on average, than youth who initiate sex before marriage.
