This individual level intervention is designed for persons living with HIV. It consists of 6 sessions facilitated by an HIV-positive peer educator. These sessions are one-on-one and occur at a site that is most comfortable for the participant (i.e. home or office). The sessions focus on stress, coping, risky sexual behavior and drug usage. The overall purpose of the intervention is to help people establish long-term goals for themselves and to develop better coping strategies to reduce HIV related stress. Participants are asked to return 60 days after completing the final session for a “booster” in order to assess the impact of the intervention. Referrals for the individual level intervention can come from any HIV service provider.
