  • Description:
    REAL Men is a group-level, skill-building intervention for fathers (or father figures) of adolescent boys ages 11-14 to encourage communication between fathers and sons about sexuality and to promote delay of sexual intercourse in youth and condom use among sexually active youth. The seven 2-hour intervention sessions emphasize the importance of father’s role in helping teens make responsible choices about sex. The first 6 group sessions are for fathers only and provide information on how to communicate with adolescents (e.g., increasing awareness of listening skills and teachable moments), general sexual topics important to teens, and information about transmission and prevention of HIV/AIDS. During these sessions, fathers also watch videotapes of fathers talking to sons about sexual topics and practice communication skills through role plays. Correct use of condoms is demonstrated by facilitators and practiced by fathers. Each week, fathers set a behavioral goal to be completed by the next session and additional take-home activity is given to be completed with sons. The intervention concludes with a joint session in which fathers and sons discuss issues related to peer pressure and parental monitoring and includes a graduation ceremony.
