Brief Intervention: A Study of Risky Sexual Behaviors Among Truant Youth

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Adolescence is a critical period for the development of sexual practices as well as an increased vulnerability to engage in risky sexual behaviors, such as having a large number of partners, having sex without using condoms, inconsistent contraceptive use, or having sex while using drugs. Truant youths represent an important target group for addressing these risky behaviors, and lowering the risk of STDs and HIV. We are implementing and evaluating a brief intervention (BI) for truant youths in Tampa, FL. We are in process of enrolling 300 officially non-delinquent truants or truant youths arrested on up to two misdemeanor charges, and their parents, in a NIDA-funded, Stage 2 clinical trial. The BI is grounded in Rational-Emotive Therapy and Behavior Problem Solving Therapy. Three groups will be compared: (1) a 2-session youth only condition (BI-Y), (2) a 2-session youth and 1-session parent condition (BI-YP), and (3) a standard truancy services (STS) condition. The impact of these service conditions on sexual risky behavior and related behaviors will be assessed up to 18 months, involving five data collection points.
