Course Description:

This course is based upon multiple documents published by some of the most reliable sources of medical information.    It is designed to be a comprehensive overview of HIV and AIDS and provides a clinician with in depth information regarding the nature of the disease, prevention strategies for clinicians and special populations of HIV infected individuals including women and Hispanics. 

 

This course was specifically designed to meet the initial licensure requirements for clinical social workers, mental health counselors and educational psychologists in the state of California.  However, numerous states require HIV/AIDS education as part of continuing education for licensed professionals and this course is likely to meet or exceed your states’ requirements as well. 

 

The course first provides the practitioner with an overview of the immune system and how it works.  This basic biology overview provides a framework for understanding infection and disease progression in HIV infected individuals.  A basic overview of HIV and AIDS is then presented.  This is followed by strategies that clinicians can use to help their clients reduce the spread of infection are also reviewed.  The course ends with in-depth information regarding women and Hispanics with HIV/AIDS.

 

The course provides “practical recommendations regarding the most simple and efficient ways of integrating both behavioral counseling and medical interventions as prevention tools into clinical practice”.  The authors accomplish this by explaining to how to identify risk behaviors, implement behavior changing counseling techniques and finally to utilize medical intervention strategies for the prevention of HIV infection.  This is followed by a review of the impact of HIV and AIDS in Women followed by a review of the HIV/ AIDS in Hispanics in publications produced by the CDC, (the) Centers for Disease Control.  These newly published documents (August 2008), provide timely and accurate information regarding the relationship between HIV infection and women and HIV infection and Hispanics.  It provides the practitioner with a great deal of much needed information.

 

Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists and certified addictions counselors can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives and dieticians and nutritionist who may work with clients who are at risk for HIV and AIDS.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who need a comprehensive review of HIV and AIDS from multiple perspectives.
