Project Example

Counseling Your Teen Clients About LARCs

Produced by the California Family Health Council, this video provides training for service providers on how to counsel teens about long acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs).

This video demonstrates how incorporating youth development principles when counseling teens about LARCs can enhance teen knowledge, perception, and use of LARCs.

Topics discussed include conveying to teens the links between using LARCs, delaying pregnancy, and achieving goals; informing teens about intrauterine contraceptives (IUCs) and contraceptive implants; and integrating dialogue on sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevention in teen LARC counseling.
