AbstractThe aim of this study was to explore and compare the views of Hong Kong Chinese adolescents, parents and teachers on the same adolescent health issues. A total of 22 focus groups were conducted with Form 1 students (aged from 11 to 13) who attended the Basic Life Skills Training program organized by the Student Health Service, Department of Health in Hong Kong. The program covered a wide range of topics including emotions, self-image, stress management, drinking, smoking and substance abuse, self-esteem and interpersonal skills. Responses from the three types of participants were somewhat different and inconsistent on the issues of changes during puberty, stress and stress management, smoking, drinking and substance abuse. Compared to the West, Chinese adolescents tended to report more stress from studying and under-report socially undesirable behaviour. The use of focus groups was recommended as an effective method of collecting qualitative data with Chinese populations. Focus groups can help maximize data collection, and sometimes, the groups can also help different individual members to gain more insights or new ideas. Copyright © 2005 SAGE Publications.
