Title: Skills for Youth: Refusal Skills

The resource is informational material about refusal skills from the Resource Center for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention website. The purpose of refusal skills is to give youth the ability to say NO to unwanted sexual advances or risky situations. There are several essential components to an effective refusal or NO statement. Youth need to understand the components that make up an effective NO before they observe or practice the skills.
