CONNECT is an intervention for couples seeking to enhance the quality of their relationship, communication, and shared commitment to safer behaviors. Participants build a solid understanding of harm reduction and HIV/Hepatitis/STI prevention.

CONNECT uses a six session couples counseling experience to discuss safer sex practices, risk reduction and communication skills.

At the end of the intervention couples will have gathered the tools to share a commitment to safer behaviors and improved communication skills.

Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes and can be scheduled twice a week or weekly: Learn how to keep each other healthy and safe. Learn communication and healthy behavior skills to strengthen your relationship. Great incentives!
