Addressing Prevention with HIV-Positive Clients

11/10 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

† 6.5 OASAS credits (not approved for initial CPS credentialing)

This one-day training will prepare participants to help people living with HIV to avoid sexual and substance use behaviors that can result in 1) transmitting HIV to others and 2) negative health outcomes for themselves. Topics to be covered and specific skills to be practiced include: psychosocial issues that can make it difficult for people living with HIV to change sexual and substance using behaviors associated with HIV transmission; identify provider values and beliefs about addressing prevention issues with their HIV-positive clients; practice using a booklet that helps people living with HIV consider issues related to disclosure to sexual and needle sharing partners; practice skills associated with working one-on-one with HIV-positive clients on prevention issues; explore specific strategies for working with special populations; and examine prevention resources and be able to make referrals for prevention services.
Prerequisite: It is strongly recommended that participants have previous knowledge and training on harm reduction and basic HIV/AIDS information.
Audience: All health and human services providers, especially those who work directly with HIV-Positive clients.
