Winett, Richard A.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v24 n2 p215-30 Sum 1991
A socially valid behavior-change intervention is broadly defined to be directed to a problem of verifiable importance, be accepted and used appropriately by target groups, and reduce substantially the probability of the problem's occurrence in target populations. The definition is applied to a family-based program to prevent human immunodeficiency virus infection in adolescents. (Author/JDD)
