Sessions include behavioral skills practice, group discussions, lectures, and role-playing. Topics that generate these discussions and activities include ethnic/gender pride; HIV/AIDS education; self-assertiveness skills training; and behavioral skills management.

NovaSalud’s TSISTA program gives participants the opportunity to explore ethnic and gender pride and sexual risk reduction behaviors through relevant vocational skills introduction and training. This is based on the knowledge that vocation and skills provide the participant with the self- confidence and empowerment necessary to focus on self-advocacy and assertiveness, which will lead to safer decision-making.
