Author:Elizabeth Marie Aparicio

Subject:Call for CYSR Special Issue: “Sexual and Reproductive Health among Marginalized and System-Involved Youth”

Special Issue: “Sexual and Reproductive Health among Marginalized and System-Involved Youth.” Guest Editors: Elizabeth Aparicio, Amy Dworsky, and Nadine Finigan-Carr Aims and scope of the special issue: Marginalized and system-involved youth, including youth experiencing homelessness and youth involved in the child welfare and/or juvenile justice systems, engage in sexual risk behaviors at higher rates and are at increased risk for pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections than their general population peers. Yet, the literature on how to sensitively address the sexual and reproductive health needs of these youth is limited. This is especially true for subgroups of youth who are over-represented among these populations (e.g., LGBTQ youth in foster care or experiencing homelessness). This special issue will feature empirical articles from around the globe that use qualitative, quantitative, or mixed-methods approaches to examine the sexual and reproductive health needs of marginalized and system-involved youth. Studies should have clearly defined implications for research, practice, and policy. We are particularly interested in studies that take a reproductive justice-oriented approach. In keeping with the interdisciplinary perspective of Children and Youth Services Review, we welcome papers from a variety of fields, such as public health, social work, prevention science, psychology, psychiatry, biology, criminology, and education.
