EveryBody[TM]: Preventing HIV and Other Sexually Transmitted Diseases among Young Teens.
Schoeberlein, Deborah
EveryBody is a curriculum that emphasizes prevention of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among early adolescents. It fosters active learning and facilitates communication about HIV/STD prevention and promotes safer behaviors. EveryBody incorporates current research on adolescent development so it can meet students where they are. Its abstinence-based approach promotes risk elimination as the safest way to prevent HIV/STD infections, endorsing risk reduction as an important component of HIV/STD prevention strategies. Lessons and activities promote development, internalization, and use of prevention-related skills and knowledge, commitment to lifelong health, self-efficacy, hope for the future, and courage. EveryBody aims to prevent interconnected high-risk behaviors and encourage interconnected protective behaviors. The curriculum addresses relevant psychosocial issues such as the experience of fear and anger in the context of HIV/STD prevention. It examines anger as an uncomfortable emotion and guides students to see that such emotions do not necessitate self-destructive risk taking. Six chapters include: (1) "Developmental Issues"; (2) "Teaching EveryBody"; (3) "Recommended Sequences for EveryBody Activities"; (4) "Information about HIV and AIDS"; (5) "Information on STDs"; and (6) "Information on Alcohol and Other Drugs." Twenty-four activities are included. (SM)
