  1. Increasing assertiveness skills to reduce HIV risk among women living with a severe and persistent mental illness.

    Article - En anglais

    This study examined whether training women living with a severe mental illness to be assertive in sexual situations would decrease their risk for HIV infection.

    Twenty female outpatients were randomly assigned to either a 10-session assertiveness training intervention or a waiting-list control condition.

    All participants completed measures of HIV-related information, motivation, skills, and sexual risk behavior pre-and postintervention and at 2-and 4-month follow-ups.

    Compared with controls, women in the intervention group increased their assertiveness skill, HIV knowledge, and frequency of condom-protected intercourse.

    It is concluded that assertiveness training for women living with a severe mental illness can serve as I part of a comprehensive HIV-risk-reduction program for this vulnerable population.
