Making Proud Choices! Week 3
Today, Prevention went out to our local substance abuse rehabilitation for youth and taught week 3 of our Making Proud Choices! curriculum. Module 3 is called Attitudes and beliefs about HIV/AIDS and condom use. This module contains a movie about a group of close friends , some of who do not believe that HIV can affect them. When they discover that someone close to them has the HIV virus, their attitudes and beliefs about who can and cannot contract HIV change drastically. Although the movie "HIV Not Us" is dated from the early nineties, it is a very interesting and captivating video for the teenage groups. Next week, Prevention will be teaching strategies for preventing HIV infection by emphasizing exercises to Stop, Think, and Act.
