Abstract

This report describes an internship completed at the Adolescent Health Counselling Service, May 6 through August 2, 1991. It includes a comprehensive report of the goals and the professional activities of the intern during the internship period. In addition, it presents a detailed discussion of an evaluation study conducted during the internship. -- The description of the internship includes the rationale, a description of the setting, the goals of the internship, its duration and a description of the supervision of the intern during the internship. A comprehensive report of the intern's professional activities according to the goals of the internship is presented. The research project, its rationale, description and limitations are described. The project consisted of an assessment of the effectiveness of the parenting program Nobody's Perfect (Atlantic Regional Health Promotional Committee, 1989) for use with adolescent parents. Through individual analysis a determination of the program's effect on participants' knowledge, attitudes, and behaviour in relation to their child's health, safety and behaviour was made. The study showed mixed results for participants, but demonstrated promise for more widespread use of the Nobody's Perfect program among adolescents. The report concludes with a summary and a set of recommendations for further study.
