Watson, Anne-Frances C. (2014) Developing improved sexual health education strategies. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis examines knowledge levels and sources of information about sex and sexuality in young people in Australia today. This research established what information young people are receiving about sex and sexuality from their four main sources; schools, parents, media, and peers; and how they process that information and apply it to their own lives.
