1. Norris-Brown, Candice. Exploring the factors that influence the sexual decision making process among African American adolescent girls.

Degree: PhD, Counseling and Student Personnel Services, 2011, University of Georgia

The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the factors that influence the sexual decision making process of 12 African American female adolescents. Three research questions guided this study: 1. What are the perceptions and beliefs that African American female adolescents have regarding sex and HIV/AIDS? 2. What are the factors that impact the sexual decision making process of African American female adolescents? 3. How do African American female adolescents describe the emotional impact that affect the decision making process to have sex? The aim of this research was to explore the factors that influence the sexual decision making process of African American female adolescents. The phenomenological research design was grounded in Black feminist theory to capture the lived experiences of the phenomenon (Patton, 2000). Data was collected during semi-structured interviews with four participants and two 90-minute focus group of an independent sample of eight informants that did not participate in the individual interviews. Bracketing of researcher assumptions was used to demonstrate dependability, credibility and coherence of the data reduction and analysis (Creswell, 2007). Open coding allowed the researcher to generate a list of broad domains to create a codebook (Wertz, 2005). The researcher used a recursive method of data collection and analysis; the codebook guided independent coding of each transcribed interview. Constant comparisons were used to help identify new codes that did not fit under previously identified domains (Lincoln & Guba, 1985). Emergent themes that parallel the research questions are described. First, themes that described the factors that impact the sexual decision making process of African American adolescent females included: (a) peer relationships; (b) media influence; and (c) mother-daughter relationship. Practice and research implications regarding the factors that influence the decision making of adolescent girls of color are discuss. Advisors/Committee Members: Deryl Bailey.

2. Sims, Lisa Lynette. An exploratory study of black adolescents’ perceptions of “Empowered Youth Programs”: an academic and social enrichment program.

Degree: PhD, Counseling Psychology, 2012, University of Georgia

The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions of Black adolescent students regarding their academic and social performance in school by participating in Empowered Youth Programs which is an after-school enrichment program. If the students perceived their academic and social performance has improved because of their participation in Empowered Youth Programs, this strategy could be one way to help students in marginalized groups close the gaps in achievement and opportunity. The Empowered Youth Programs Impact Questionnaire was given as a pre-test and post-test to determine program impact. Results from this study, although statistically insignificant, showed that the participants in the Empowered Youth Programs perceived there was program impact regarding their academic performance. Additionally, male participants believed the program impacted their social performance, however; female participants did not perceive program impact regarding their social performance. Advisors/Committee Members: Deryl Bailey.
