This 90 minute webinar was presented on March 20, 2013 by Mary Hatch-Maillette of the Pacific Northwest Node and Aimee N. C. Campbell of the Greater New York Node as part of the Seattle STD/HIV Prevention Training Center webinar series, “Hard to Reach, Hard to Treat: Current Approaches to HIV Prevention and Care.”
Titled “HIV Prevention in Substance Abuse Treatment Settings,” this webinar includes an overview of current incidence of HIV/AIDS in the U.S.; descriptions of recent research examining prevention interventions of biological, behavioral, and structural focus; and a discussion of the challenges clinicians and counselors face when trying to talk openly and comfortable with their clients about sexual issues.
Aims, methods, and results from CTN-0018 and CTN-0019 (Reducing HIV/STD Risk Behaviors: A Research Study for Men/Women in Drug Abuse Treatment) are presented, with a focus on “real world implications.” The webinar ends with an overview of the pilot feasibility trial testing the efficacy of a culturally-adapted version of the CTN-0018 intervention for men (Real Men Are Safe – Culturally Adapted) to make it more relevant to African American and Hispanic men.
