About this book
High-risk sexual behavior has been linked to social problems such as substance abuse, domestic violence, homelessness, and deprivation. This volume's unique multidisciplinary biopsychosocial approach combines relevant medical information regarding disease states with the cultural, social, and psychological facets of successful prevention programs. Becker and Rankin outline specific interventions that address the needs of particularly vulnerable populations: women, ethnic minorities, and the gay community. Useful chapter summaries which review the pros and cons of different approaches will aid both the student and the practitioner.
