An information-motivation-behavioral skills model of adherence to antiretroviral therapy.
The authors propose an information-motivation-behavioral skills (IMB) model of HAART adherence that assumes that adherence-related information, motivation, and behavioral skills are fundamental determinants of adherence to HAART.

The Impact of Incarceration On Intimate Relationships
How institutional barriers and dependency lead to emotional withdrawal and disengagement from relationships and power differentials, avoidant communication strategies, and relationship instability were found to place these relationships at increased risk for HIV infection.
Parental Alienating Behaviors: An Unacknowledged Form of Family Violence
The result of this review highlights how the societal denial of parental alienation has been like the historical social and political denial of abuse in many parts of the world (e.g., child abuse a century ago).

Outcomes of studies targeting those with poor ART adherence had stronger effects than those intervening with groups of individuals who were mixed in terms of pretest levels of adherence, and adherence improvements showed no tendency to decay across time.

One potential promising application of the IMB model of HAART adherence is explored that uses a protocol originally developed and demonstrated as a structured patient-centered, provider-delivered risk reduction intervention to deliver information, motivation, and behavioral skills-based adherence-promotion strategies.

Perceptions of primary and secondary relationships in polyamory
The current research examines this issue within one type of consensual non-monogamy, specifically polyamory, using a convenience sample of 1,308 self-identified polyamorous individuals who provided responses to various indices of relationship evaluation and discusses how these results inform the understanding of the unique costs and rewards of primary-secondary relationships in polyamories.
The Relationship-Oriented Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills Model: A Multilevel Structural Equation Model among Dyads
This is the first theoretical model of HIV risk behavior to be analyzed at the dyadic level, and the results suggest ways to effectively design intervention strategies for individuals in intimate relationships.
