Outcomes of specialized and traditional AIDS counseling programs for impoverished women of color.
The efficacy and differential effects of specialized (S) and traditional (T) AIDS education programs on cognitive, behavioral, and psychological outcomes were investigated.
The sample consisted of 858 impoverished African-American and Latina women (S = 448, T = 410).
At baseline, women in the traditional group reported significantly higher distress, greater knowledge of AIDS, and less problem-focused coping.
Significant improvements over the 2-week intervention interval were found for participants of both AIDS education programs for appraisal of threat, concerns, knowledge, and attitudes about AIDS, emotion-focused coping, number of sexual partners, IV and non-IV drug use, depression, and distress.
