Although the authors address the links between use of alcohol and other drugs, sexual abuse and assault, and unsafe sexual practices, they do not focus on interventions tailored to specific psychiatric populations such as those with severe mental illness or substance use disorders. Mental health providers looking for models tailored to clinical settings will not find that kind of information here. The medical facts are occasionally incorrect; for example, maternal-fetal transmission of HIV itself is confused with the universal transmission of the mother's HIV antibodies to her unborn child. However, such inaccuracies are rarely important in this context, as the authors focus on changing behavior, and the medical points are mentioned only briefly to orient the reader. There is also some repetition, particularly of descriptions of prevention models, among the chapters.
