smart (for negative youth)
Adaptive intervention study designed to reduce HIV risk
The Sexual Minority Adolescent Risk Taking (SMART) project is an eHealth intervention that is tailored to the specific needs of adolescent men who have sex with men (AMSM) living in the United States. By adopting a stepped-down approach, which recognizes that different people respond differently to interventions, this project will deliver both contextually and culturally relevant information and skills to AMSM in hopes of minimizing sexual risk.
The SMART Project package includes:
- Queer Sex Ed - a universally-delivered, brief, online sexual health education program designed for sexual and gender minority youth regardless of whether they are sexually active
- Keep It Up! - a more intensive online intervention designed for diverse AMSM engaging in HIV transmission risk behaviors
- Young Men's Health Project - a more intensive motivational interviewing (MI) intervention delivered by MI therapists via online video chat
