Project RESPECT: Two Models of Effective, Individual, Client-focused HIV Prevention Counseling Inter
Program Type: Evidence Based Practice - Programs formally evaluated to be effective, sometimes called "Best Practices", that can be replicated and implemented, even with modifications in other settings
Project RESPECT has two, one-on-one, client-focused, HIV prevention counseling interventions; “brief counseling” (two sessions) and “enhanced counseling” (four sessions). The interventions seek to reduce high-risk sexual behaviors and prevent new sexually transmitted infections. RESPECT is based on the Theory of Reasoned Action, which explains how behaviors are guided by attitudes, beliefs, experiences, and expectations of other persons’ reactions, and on Social Cognitive Theory, which states that persons learn by observing other people successfully practice a new behavior.
