(a) cope with social and peer pressures through the development of "refusal skills";

(b) understand and internalize the emotional, social, and physical health benefits of sexual abstinence until marriage (i.e. we want our preteens and teens to gain knowledge; but much more importantly, to experience changes in attitude and behavior, and for those who are already abstinent, to strengthen their determination to remain abstinent.)
