A quasi-experimental research study found that a 6-week psychoeducational group intervention was effective in alleviating stress, depression, and anxiety among eight heterosexual persons with HIV/AIDS in an experimental group. The group intervention consisted of both educational topics and psychological support. Scores on several measures changed significantly from pretest to posttest. A comparison group of heterosexual persons living with HIV/AIDS showed no significant differences from pretest to posttest. Implications for further research, practice, and program development are discussed.
