Project dates: April 2015 - September 2017
Principal Investigator: Khan, Maria

This study adapted Project CONNECT, a couples-level HIV prevention intervention focused on strengthening relationship ties and communication while building skills in problem solving and safer sex education, by screening inmate participants for depression, antisocial personality disorder, and borderline/impulsive tendencies, while incorporating intervention content that addresses these mood/personality factors. It assessed the feasibility and acceptability of these procedures among correctional staff and Project CONNECT participants.
