  • Description:
    Living in the Face of Trauma (LIFT) is a group-level coping intervention for HIV-positive persons who experienced childhood sexual abuse. The intervention consists of fifteen 90 - minute sessions delivered to same-gender groups (about 6-8 persons per group). The LIFT intervention incorporates adaptive coping, which includes problem-focused strategies for changeable stressors and emotion-focused strategies for unchangeable stressors. These adaptive coping strategies assist participants in identifying and addressing in dividual stressors related to HIV infection and sexual trauma. Through discussions, trigger identification, skills-building exercises, goal setting, and social support, participants learn problem solving, communication skills, risk-reduction skills, cognitive reformation, and relaxation techniques to improve coping and reduce HIV sexual transmission risk behavior.
