By Jenny R. Billings and Jan Macvarish


The present report summarizes the work of the cross-frontier group which was established, within the\ud framework of Interreg IV, to consider the concept of self-efficacy. A first full-scale study entitled "Let's\ud Talk/Parlez-moi d'amour" had already been undertaken, under the aegis of the Interreg III programme, by\ud several of the partners involved, to examine perceptions in Kent and the Somme of teenage pregnancy as a\ud social phenomenon. This initial project was concluded in 2007 by a conference in Amiens, Somme, during\ud which the French and English research groups were able to present and discuss their findings
