This book presents a holistic view of young people's sexuality and sexual health, including social policy, sociological and educational perspectives. Drawing on national and international policy analyzes, on academic research and on a range of practical approaches to working with different groups, Young People and Sexual Health provides a comprehensive overview of this complex area. It will be of use to postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students, to practitioners working in sexual health and to those in the policy arena.
