Adolescent Sexual Development: An Overview of Recent Research

2 years ago 2 years ago Published by Leave your thoughts

An overview of recent research describing adolescent sexual development is presented, including research examining puberty, sexual attitudes and behaviours, and LGBTQ youth and stigma. This overview is placed within the context of the healthy sexual development framework and the four domains of development (physical, social, cognitive, and emotional) incorporated in the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services’ youth policy framework. Finally, recommendations are made for future community mental health research and policy.
