 Joy Events LLC Presents: The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) PHAT-C 

 The Promoting Health Among Teens!  Comprehensive Abstinence and Safer Sex Intervention is designed to give young adolescents the tools they need to reduce their risk of pregnancy, HIV, and other STDs.  The goal is to increase their knowledge and perception of their personal vulnerability, develop positive attitudes toward abstinence and safer sex, and build negotiation skills and confidence needed to abstain from unsafe sexual intercourse and other sexual behaviors that put them at risk, as well as provide the skills and confidence necessary to use condoms willingly and effectively.


It isn't easy to motivate people to modify their sexual behavior, even when that behavior puts them at risk,  Hence, the model of human behavior used to understand sexual risk behavior in Promoting Health Among!  Comprehensive Abstinence and Safer Sex Intervention draws upon social learning theories, and the interventions proposed for changing that behavior reflects a cognitive-based approach.  this curriculum has also been informed by data gathered through numerous focus groups as well as the developers' extensive experience working with young people. 


In order to encourage young people to adopt less risky behaviors, they must be provided with the following crucial tools:

  • The information they need to understand the issues.
  • The cognitive skills will allow them to examine their beliefs about personal risks and their consequences and to analyze the behaviors or situations that increase their risk of pregnancy, HIV, and other STDs.
  • The intrapersonal (within self) skills to understand and manage their feelings and thoughts,
  • The interpersonal (between self and others) skills to define and exercise behaviors that reduce personal risk.
  • A sense of self-efficacy or the confidence required to allow them to make safer decisions about their sexual choices.
  • The motivation to apply these skills to their everyday lives.
