  • Description:
    PALMS is a group-level intervention delivered in three sessions to groups of 8 to 20 adolescents. It uses theatrical performance and role-play to deliver an innovative, theorybased HIV risk reduction intervention. Session 1 provides basic information about HIV transmission, epidemiology, and testing. A dramatic performance that explores relationship issues such as refusing sexual coercion, condom negotiation, and delaying sexual initiation and ends with an unresolved conflict. Session 2 involves HIV 101 Jeopardy, interactive discussion, and role-plays to practice communication, decision making, and negotiation skills. Session 3 includes interviews with the actors who stay in character to answer questions and take advice from participants, based on what participants have learned; performance of the resolution for the skit, based on participant advice; and condom demonstration, practice, and games.
