In this unit, you examined the role of community education as it relates to child abuse and neglect, teen pregnancy, and substance use among youth.
Please respond to the following questions:
Do you believe that enough time has been devoted to providing community education related to child abuse, teen pregnancy, and substance use among youth? Why or why not?
If you were approached by a pregnant teen or a teen who struggles with substance abuse in your community, would there be a specific agency you could direct them to? If yes, please share the name of the agency. If no, how does this reality make you feel?
If you were to refer a teen for assistance, would an agency that serves teens and adults be sufficient, or would you prefer an agency dedicated to supporting youth? Please explain your reasoning.
