About

The purpose of this study is to develop and pilot test a culturally and developmentally tailored Motivational Enhancement Intervention (MEI) to reduce risky sex (unprotected anal sex and multiple partners) among young Hispanic men who have sex with men (YHMSM).

Full description

Stage 1, divided into Stage 1a and Stage 1b, focuses on development, refinement, and pilot testing of interventions. The formative research leading to and including intervention development is completed in Stage 1a. A pilot study to provide acceptability/feasibility data and obtain effect size estimates of the intervention's strength in changing a desired outcome is conducted in Stage 1b. If Stage 1b results are "promising," the intervention moves to full scale efficacy testing in Stage 2 using the classic experimental design of a randomized control trial (RCT). The intervention is ready for Stage 3 effectiveness testing only after its efficacy has been demonstrated in at least two Stage 2 trials.

Motive8 2 Change FtF
Experimental group
Description:
This arm of the motivational enhancement intervention (MEI) will be delivered face to face (FtF) using a real-time, dynamic implementation approach. The intervention consisted of 2 sessions lasting approximately 60 to 90 minutes. The sessions focused on increasing participants' awareness of the multiple influences on behaviors from self, family, culture and community and how these influences impact the way we think and behave including sexually. Through a series of exercises the participant develops strategies for understanding and managing his own triggers that helps them to make healthy life choices. Both Motiv8 2Change arms used the exact same intervention, with the exception that one was delivered face to face and the other through the internet.
