Safer Sex Efficacy Workshop
This three-hour workshop is designed to increase college students' self-efficacy,
or belief in their own ability to act successfully to prevent HIV/AIDS and
other sexually transmitted diseases. Drawing upon social learning theory, the
program includes numerous role-play and skill-building exercises, and is led
by peer educators who are trained to serve as persuasive models. To give students
the knowledge necessary to practice preventive behaviors, the leaders begin
by facilitating a group discussion about HIV/AIDS and STDs, including transmission
and prevention. During the next section, participants discuss personal experiences
of and feelings about AIDS and other STDs. Finally, the students role play
safe-sex discussions and learn about correct condom use, gaining confidence
in their abilities in the process. A field study of the workshop was conducted
with 209 undergraduate students enrolled in a health education class at the
University of Texas. Compared to comparison groups of their peers, program
participants showed significant increases in self-efficacy at the two month
follow-up assessment. Sexually active students also showed an increase in their
frequency of condom use. View
