ABSTRACT
Safer sex is important for protection against STDs and HIV/AIDS. The purpose of this study was to test the efficacy of a brief social cognitive theory based safer sex intervention among African-American college students. A randomized controlled design was used. Results concluded that there was no difference between a theory-based intervention and a knowledge-based intervention in terms of efficacy in developing safer sex behavioral skills. Ever diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease, year in school and ever taking a sexuality class were significant demographic covariates. The dose of the intervention was thought to be insufficient and must be increased in future interventions.
