dc.description.abstract The primary theme of this study is the accompanying of the adolescent girl after a termination of pregnancy. A termination of pregnancy is traumatic for any woman, even more so for the adolescent girl who does not necessarily possess the required coping mechanisms to deal with the emotional load that a termination brings with it. Often this girl undergoes a termination in secret, and as a result of the secrecy she does not have any support system. She chooses to keep the termination a secret and therefore she cannot share her fears, heartache, regret, guilt and shame. The relationship in which she was, usually breaks up as a result of the termination, and even that support disappears from her life. She stands alone. She has unanswered questions. She yearns to cry and share her secret - but with whom? After the termination her relationship with herself and with others is poor, and therefore she isolates herself. She does not want to allow herself to have a future, and therefore urgently needs to be guided out of her feelings of hopelessness so that she can dream again, and see a future for herself. The adolescent girl must be led to self-insight, self-awareness and insight into her situation. She must be led to self-assertiveness, empowerment and eventually mental well being. These girls are usually without direction in their lives and caught up in a web of distorted ideas and dysfunctional relationships: her relationship with herself and with others. Her future perspective is also affected. To underpin this situation, I undertook the study and developed a psychosocial programme to support this girl after termination, to assist her to achieve her full potential, as God would wish. The aim of this programme is thus, in co-operation with this adolescent girl, to lead her to mental well being and a new perspective on her future. She must be assured that there is life after a termination of pregnancy. This is done through questioning, listening, discussing, reformulating and reconstructing her circumstances. A person never completes your life's story, but nothing prevents you from reformulating your future, irrespective of what happened in your past. The framework of the programme is compiled from the results of a literature study of published research. This programme was implemented and evaluated on the basis of three interpersonal conversations held with ladies who had undergone termination of pregnancy. Certain needs were identified by these ladies and used as guideline to develop a psycho-social programme to support and lead girls after a termination of a pregnancy. The contribution of this study is in the conceptual framework and programme. The programme has been evaluated in a pilot study. en_US
