New International Directions in HIV Prevention for Gay and Bisexual Men includes findings from American and European research to propose new methods to prevent HIV that challenge existing prevention practice methods. The editors seek to integrate neglected aspects of risk behavior into HIV/AIDS prevention work such as love, trust, and risk management and inform readers about the symbolic, or imaginary, protections that give gay and bisexual men the false impression that they are taking no sexual risks.

Containing charts, data, and case studies to bolster theories and suggestions, New International Directions in HIV Prevention for Gay and Bisexual Men encourages the creation of realistic solutions for HIV prevention that take the nature of the sexual relationship into consideration.

It is widely recognized that current HIV intervention models are falling short of their goals. What are the alternatives? To answer this question, this book presents a collection of articles from European and American authors that rival dominant paradigms of HIV prevention. Researchers, practitioners, and community organizations will be challenged to examine current assumptions and to consider neglected aspects of risk behavior such as love, trust, and the dynamics of sexual intimacy. The book explores models and theories that will help you develop more effective HIV prevention programs to better serve patients and clients.

Editorial Reviews

Contributors from Europe and North America challenge the dominant paradigms of HIV prevention and explore models and theories to help professionals develop more effective prevention programs. They consider such factors as improving successful risk management strategies rather than quantifying risk factors; examining the meaning and context of sexual acts that occur in casual encounters and steady partnerships and their relevance to prevention; harm reduction rather than expecting abstinence; and relating such aspects of sexual encounters as physical attraction, intimacy, reciprocity, and power to why men choose not to use condoms. Paper edition 1-56023-116-5, $22.95. Also published as Journal of Psychology and Human Sexuality vol. 10, nos. 3/4 1998. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
