  Purpose

This research study will examine the usefulness of groups in reducing stress and helping individuals with HIV to stay healthy and avoid problems associated with sexually transmitted diseases. We hope to discover whether being in a group is effective in reducing stress-related symptoms and promoting healthy behaviors.

Further study details as provided by Stanford University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine if decreasing trauma-related stress symptoms improves HIV risk reduction behavior above a standard HIV risk reduction intervention alone post -intervention 3, 6, and 12 months after the group intervention sessions. [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine if decreasing trauma-related stress symptoms improves HIV risk reduction behavior above a standard HIV risk reduction intervention alone [ Time Frame: 15 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether key variables moderate the intervention's effects. For instance gender, age, ethnicity, or psychological distress (e.g. , depression, anxiety) may interact with the intervention to affect risky sexual or drug-related behavior. [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine whether key variables moderate the intervention's effects. [ Time Frame: 15 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
