Integration statements create opportunities to integrate fatherhood and sexual and reproductive health into the conversations we are already having with our adolescent clients.
Integration statements communicate that we’re introducing fatherhood and sexual and reproductive health into the conversation, clarify how fatherhood and sexual/reproductive health are connected, normalize the conversation, and ask for the client’s permission before sharing information or asking questions.
This handout provides general examples of integration statements as well as statements that can be used in clinical, substance use treatment, foster care, and juvenile court settings.
