HIV Disclosure: Deciding Who and When to Tell

9/28 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This half-day training will increase the awareness of the multifaceted issues clients face when contemplating HIV status disclosure to family, friends and service providers. Participants will develop the skills necessary to conduct timely ongoing assessments and discussion of HIV status disclosure as a component of effective service planning. This training is meant to enhance case manager skills and should not be viewed as a foundational training for new staff entering the field. By the end of this training, participants will be able to: describe the benefits of ongoing assessment and discussion around disclosure; outline a format to help clients with effective decision-making about HIV/AIDS status disclosure, listing the benefits and limitations; explain the value of supporting a client’s decision regarding disclosure; and discuss the steps involved in making the decision to disclose HIV/AIDS status to family, friends and service providers.
Prerequisite: None.
Audience:Case Management Staff including: Case Managers and Case Management Technicians in both COBRA and grant-funded programs; Supervisors, Program Directors, and other interested Health and Human Service Providers.
