Gender Differences in Preferred Drug Resistance Strategies of Rural Native Hawaiian Youth.

Affilia 2013 May;28(2):140-152

Undergraduate Students, Hawai'i Pacific University.

Consistent with relational-cultural theory, qualitative findings indicated how female youth participants favored drug resistance strategies that maintained relational connectedness with the drug offerer, and how they considered the long-term relational consequences of different drug resistance strategies.

Postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Behavioral Health Services & Criminal Justice Research, Rutgers University/University of Pennsylvania, 176 Ryders Lane, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.

Through in-depth interviews, this study examined the relational context of sexual HIV risk for 10 Black women aged 18-30 who were defendants in a community court setting. A qualitative data analysis identified themes of actual and feared intimate partner violence (IPV) and the expectations of demonstrating trust in a relationship as obstacles to negotiating the use of condoms. The findings speak to the broader structural factors and consequences of IPV and drug use. Read More
