  • Description:
    The Standard SAFE intervention is a small group, motivational and skill building intervention to reduce risky sexual behaviors and STDs among minority women. The 3 intervention sessions, delivered to groups of 5–6 women, emphasize recognizing risk, increasing commitment to change behavior, and facilitating the acquisition of protective skills. Women participate in group discussions to increase awareness of AIDS and other STDs and prevention methods, address myths of HIV acquisition, increase awareness of personal risk, and discuss relationship issues and barriers to condom use. Women are taught how to ask partners about their current behaviors, apply condoms, and make safer decisions regarding sexual health. Preventive strategies discussed included abstinence, monogamy, correct condom use, and reducing the number of sex pa rtners. Through videotapes, games, discussions and practice, women learn skills to facilitate communication and negotiation of safer sex, raise feelings of self-efficacy in partner selection and communication about condom use, identify triggers to unsafe s ex, and encourage the sharing of information with others to build a support network. Standard STD counseling and testing is also provided to everyone by a nurse clinician.
