Get Real About AIDS® - This program is no longer available.
This fourteen-session program for high school students emphasizes
behavioral skill development. During the first several classes, students
study transmission and prevention of HIV, teen vulnerability to the
virus, and determinants of risky behaviors. In the second half of the
program, students learn and repeatedly practice skills to help them
identify, manage, avoid, and leave risky situations. The final sessions
help students integrate what they have learned in the program into
their own lives. The program encourages teens to delay having intercourse,
or for those youth who do become sexually active, to be sexually monogamous,
avoid drugs and alcohol that could cloud one's judgment during intercourse,
practice safer sex, get tested for HIV if they believe they are at
risk, and avoid sharing needles. A field study of the curriculum was
conducted in seventeen Colorado high schools serving rural, suburban,
and urban populations. In a six month follow-up assessment comparing
Get Real about AIDS® participants with a comparison group of
peers, sexually-active program participants had fewer sexual partners,
purchased and used condoms more frequently, intended to engage in sex
less frequently and planned to use condoms when they did. The evaluation
data did not record, however, a delay in the onset of sexual activity,
a decrease the frequency of sexual activity or a reduction in drug
and alcohol use prior to sex. View
