Abstract

This manuscript describes the need for innovative strategies in health education through a comprehensive literature review, detail of forty-three participatory theater activities for use in a health context, and field observations of employing participatory theater activities at three different application sites. Through analysis of adolescent health research, invention of original educational methodologies, and observation of personal experience, the manuscript seeks to instill new vision and life into the field of youth sexuality education.
