TPP Program - Seventeen Days

Seventeen Days is an evidence based interactive film designed to educate adolescent girls (over age 14) about decision-making, contraception and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Girls who viewed the program had increased abstinence from sex and decreased STIs. The film presents scenarios involving decisions that young women may face in romantic relationships. It identifies choice points, suggests risk-reduction strategies (including abstinence) and asks viewers to think about what they would do in similar situations. The film is interactive, allowing viewers to choose what they want to watch. Viewers are given the opportunity to imagine how they would respond in hypothetical situations through the frequent use of “cognitive rehearsal.”
