CERVANTES, Richard C.  e  GOLDBACH, Jeremy T.. Adapting evidence-based prevention approaches for Latino adolescents: the Familia Adelante program - revised. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.3, pp.281-290. ISSN 2173-4712.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/in2012a25.

Behavioral health is defined as the absence of mental illness or substance use problems and the presence of positive emotional well-being. Although many U.S. Hispanic youth are at increased risk for substance abuse, suicidality, teen pregnancy, unsafe sexual practices and HIV, there exists a lack of available evidence-based practices for Hispanic youth which promotes behavioral health and HIV prevention. The objective of the current research was to adapt and revise the Familia Adelante (FA) Program, a behavioral health, drug intervention and prevention program to incorporate an HIV prevention component. Through qualitative community based participatory methods, including an expert panel and members of the target population, the curriculum was redesigned to integrate effective HIV risk reduction strategies. The process of adapting the intervention is described in this paper, as well as recommendations for future research in program adaptation.
