[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Specific aims: This study is preliminary to a health services research project to transfer research advances to community use. The purpose is to contribute to increasing knowledge about barriers and facilitators from the youth perspective. Research Questions: 1) What are the perceived barriers to engaging in physical activity? 2) What are the perceived facilitators to engaging in physical activity? 3) What are teen perceptions of physical activity in their daily life? Research Design: This is a participatory needs assessment for a future participatory action research study, using a photovoice technique combined with group dialog and interpretive inquiry analytic techniques. Instruments: Interview probes were used to elicit information about the pictures and picture categories. These included: ôTell me about this pictureö; ôWhat does this group of six pictures say about (barriers, facilitators, your physical activity).ö ôAs a whole, what does the entire set of pictures you took say, what is the meaning of this whole set?ö Contextual questions will be asked depending on the responses. For instance, ôWhat was happening when this was taken.ö ôWho is/was with you?ö ôHow often do you encounter this?ö Population: Thirty adolescents age 13-17 recruited through a Hill District after-school program. Procedures: Participants are given a 24 exposure disposable camera to take, over a two week period, 8 pictures for each of the three categories: barriers, facilitators, and physical activity. At Session 2 participants meet individually to discuss their pictures. At Session 3, all participants meet to view and discuss all pictures and what we learn from them. Significance: Findings will enrich understanding of factors related to physical activity behavior change and be useful in developing and testing strategies to overcome barriers and to maximize facilitators. Findings will provide information for future research to examine the effectiveness of an adolescent intervention program at the community level.
