  • Description:
    The RESPECT Brief Counseling + Booster intervention is a one-on-one, client-focused HIV/STD prevention intervention, consisting of two 20-minute interactive counseling sessions and one 20-minute booster session approximately 6 months later. The intervention is based on the 2-session model used in Project RESPECT Brief Counseling Intervention. HIV counselors help STD clinic patients identify personal risk factors and barriers to risk reduction, work with patients to develop an achievable personalized risk -reduction plan, and support patient-initiated behavioral change. At the initial clinic visit, STD clinic patients receive the first counseling session and are tested for HIV with either a rapid or standard HIV test. HIV test results and the second counseling session are given at the end of the initial clinic visit (rapid test group) or 1 week later (standard test group). The additional booster counseling session reinforces the previous counseling and includes a review of the risk-reduction plan, a revised risk assessment, the negotiation of a new riskreduction plan, and identification of sources of support in carrying out the risk -reduction plan.
