  • Description:
    Women’s Co-Op is a woman-focused intervention that incorporates gender- and culturespecific skills training for crack-using African American women. The first 2 sessions are delivered to women individually, and focus on pre - and post-test counseling for HIV. Session 1 includes a personal HIV risk assessment, and provides women with skills training on condom and dental dam use and syringe cleaning. Session 2 includes receipt of HIV test results, the development of an individualized risk assessment plan, and a repeat of the skills training from Session 1. The final 2 sessions are delivered to small groups of 2 to 5 women, and use a support-based format to help women develop skills that can reduce their risk of HIV. These sessions include the development of communication and problem solving skills that increase women’s sense of power and ability to cope with stress.
