An Intervention to Promote Healthy Behaviors in Homeless Youth

Investigators will use a Solomon 4-group design to test the effectiveness of a brief intervention to promote health behaviors for homeless youth who are 18-23 years of age. We will recruit 300 youths from Austin, TX and 300 from Columbus, OH. We will gather quantitative data on health behaviors and life satisfaction 3 and 6 months following the intervention, which will be delivered on an individual basis. Data will be analyzed using structural equation modeling and ANCOVA statistics.
