Research Watch October 2001

October 1, 2001

This Research Watch includes a first-of-its-kind study of boys’ sexual development, a new look at virginity pledges and a reminder that threats of violence are encouraged by media coverage of violence. Youth workers are on the front lines dealing with these issues, but these studies raise more questions than they answer.
