406 Innovation Network: A New Approach to Advancing Adolescent Sexual Health in Justice Settings*

Youth in the justice system experience disproportionately high rates of unplanned pregnancy and STDs/STIs, yet the field suffers from a concerning gap in tailored evidence-based preventive programming. This session will provide a reason for optimism. The national Juvenile Justice Innovation and Impact Network is co-designing and testing seven engaging theory-based interventions in direct partnership with young people and correctional partners. Workshop participants will learn more about their unique strategy and results-oriented partnerships with justice systems around the country and gain a deeper knowledge of collective approaches, emerging theories, and promising interventions.

Educational Objectives

  • Describe the need for innovative partnerships to develop effective adolescent sexual health prevention education
  • Define motivational interviewing - social network theory, education entertainment, and human-centered design theories
