An STD Prevention Intervention for Men Newly Released From Jail
The MISTERS Project: An STD Prevention Intervention for Men Newly Released From Jail
Study participants who are exposed to the intervention will: 1)report more condom use during sexual episodes; 2) have fewer new and repeat STD infections 3)demonstrate greater risk reduction, communication, and anger management skills; 4) report fewer substance use behaviors, and 5)report more health care seeking activities, than the participants in the control group
The MISTERS study is a randomized control trial of a cognitive-behavioral skill building multi-session intervention that targets men who are newly released from jail and have a history of drug use. Men 45 days or less post release with self reported HIV negative and substance use histories were randomized into either a 5-session intervention or control group. Study participation included four time-sensitive interviews and STD testing at three time periods. The interview questions included demographics, STD history and knowledge, sexual risk behaviors, as well as an assessment of anger management, communication, and condom use skills.
