(from the chapter) Reviews program elements that are routinely utilized by HIV prevention interventions in order to highlight their similarities with and differences from motivational interviewing. Clinical case studies are used during brief clinical encounters with adolescents to illustrate the application of motivational techniques in order to encourage safer sexual behavior. In addition, the processes of change that stimulate motivation to change, as developed by J. Prochaska (1989), are illustrated in case vignettes. Last, the authors discuss specific issues concerning adolescent development, culture, psychological impairment, and intervention format as they relate to motivational techniques for adolescent sexual behavior change.
