Abstract

Numerous interventions have been designed to promote safer sexual behaviour amongst young people, However, relatively few have proved effective, which is, at least partially, due to the lack of development of theoretically based programmes, An understanding of the origins and control of sexual behaviour can be derived from basic social science research. Unless this is applied to the design of behaviour-change programmes they are unlikely to target the most important determinants of young people's sexual behaviour and are, therefore, unlikely to be effective. This paper outlines some of the key theoretical insights which have been drawn upon in the development of a new sex education programme currently being tested in Scottish schools, The theoretical basis isintentionally eclectic, combining social psychological cognitive models with sociological interpretations, since we are not concerned to advance any particular theory but to find which are most useful in promoting sexual health. First, the social influences on sexual behaviour are considered, and then the way in which these translate into individual perceptions and beliefs, Finally, the paper attempts to develop a theoretical understanding of sexual interaction and the social contextsof sexual behaviour.
