This chapter provides a broad overview of the role of setting in family based prevention. This chapter has several related goals: First, we provide a brief overview of the ecodevelopmental model. Second, we explore the existing empirical literature providing evidence to support how specific settings may present risk or protection for HIV/STDs for individuals within a family, using the framework of the ecodevelopmental model. The settings to be explored in this chapter include the home, school, neighborhood, church, and substance abuse treatment settings. Finally, for each setting we provide examples illustrating which aspects of settings may be most important for conducting HIV/STD family based preventive interventions.
