  • Description:
    Males of African American Legacy Empowering Self (MAALES) is a group-level, culturally and historically congruent, HIV sexual-risk-reduction intervention. The intervention includes six small-group sessions and two booster sessions. Sessions 1 and 2 focus on past experiences and social expectations of African American men, historical discrimination and disenfranchisement, risky behaviors, HIV testing, and societal impacts on health behaviors and sexual decision-making. Sessions 3 and 4 focus on current health behaviors and sexual and drug-use risk reduction, with specific attention on developing sexual risk-reduction goals, improving communication and empowerment skills, and identifying personal motivators for preserving health. Sessions 5 and 6 focus on sustaining and committing to risk-reduction strategies. The booster sessions review concepts and skills learned in the core curriculum and encourage participants to share successes and challenges in applying them. Participants engage in facilitated group discussions that address social influences and cultural norms to encourage health promoting behaviors that also benefit participants’ sexual partners, families, and communities.
