dc.description.abstractAs Black adolescents become socialized with sexuality and intimate partner relationships, they have been susceptible to suffering from sexually negative outcomes (Grisby, 2018; Harper et al., 2019; Shambley-Ebron et al., 2016). With high rates of sexually transmitted infections (STI) continually rising, Black adolescent girls suffer from consequences of risky sexual behavior (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2018). The literature is indicative of parent-child communication serving as a protective barrier to adolescents’ sexual behavior choices (Grigsby, 2018; Harper et a, 2019; Shambley-Ebron et al., 2016). Mothers who feel comfortable communicating openly with their daughter, are perceived to engage frequently with their daughters about sex. The goal of this presentation is to discuss Black mothers’ communication with their daughters about sexuality and recommendations to families and family practitioners, in order to circumvent negative sexual health outcomes amongst Black adolescent and young adult girls.
