This brief presents two complementary conceptual models—one for sexual risk avoidance and a second for sexual risk cessation—that aim to guide efforts to prevent youth risk behaviors and promote optimal health. Building on an earlier briefthat presented initial versions of the conceptual models, this brief describes refined versions of the conceptual models enhanced through additional information and analysis.
