This article describes a program of research aimed at informing and improving AIDS prevention efforts during the transition to adolescence for urban African American youth and their families. The overall goal of this program is to apply basic developmental psychology research to intervention design and program delivery. Discussion of a theoretical model and preliminary descriptive data is presented, with specific attention paid to the implications for preventive intervention work and the need for ongoing collaboration with intervention and applied researchers as well as with communities targeted for intervention.
