  • Choosing the right setting is important. Positively asks the userto decide where they’d like to disclose their status.
  • Now that the avatars and setting have been customized, it’stime to start rehearsing. The first step is for the user to type howthey would like to disclose their status.
  • Positively will make the other avatar respond with questions thattypically come up during these conversations. These questionswill be pre-determined with the help of professionals and HIV+individuals who have already disclosed their statuses.
  • When answering questions, users can always get help. Theycan see how other Positively users have answered thequestion, what experts recommend, or materials that may helpwith the topic at hand.
  • After going through all of the questions, Positively plays out abest and worst case scenario so the user has a preparednessplan for both.
  • In the best case scenario, the user is prompted to think aboutwhat they might say if their loved one offers help and support.
  • At the end of the rehearsal, the user can play back an animatedvideo of the conversation, and either save the rehearsalprivately, publish it on Positively, or share it with others.
