Families in Society
The author presents prospective data from a small-scale study of 15 families experiencing an unmarried teenage pregnancy. During and after the pregnancy, the adolescents and their parents were interviewed separately and responded to standardized instruments. Family members' closeness to, communication with, and opinions about the baby's father were significantly different as a function of family role and stage of the pregnancy. The clinical implications of these findings are discussed. (Author abstract)
