Our Prevention Programs

  • Family Treatment Center - HIV/AIDS Education and Prevention at Newark Beth Israel Medical CenterCLEAR is an intervention focusing on reduction of emotional distress and increase of quality of life. Each participant is taught relaxation, self-instruction, and meditation techniques in order to control negative emotional states. Participants also identify long-term life goals in this program.
  • Safe in the City is a single-session, video-based intervention that contains key prevention messages aimed at increasing knowledge and perception of HIV/STD risk, promoting positive attitudes toward condom use, and building self-efficacy and skills to facilitate partner treatment, safer sex, and the acquisition, negotiation, and use of condoms.
  • RESPECT identifies personal risk factors and barriers to risk reduction and works with patients to develop an achievable personalized risk-reduction plan.
  • ARTAS is an individual-level, multi-session, time-limited intervention with the goal of linking recently diagnosed persons with HIV to medical care soon after receiving their positive test result.
