WORKING WITH CLIENTS LIVING WITH HIV/AIDS AND CO-OCCURING MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS

This one-day course addresses HIV/AIDS within a bio-psycho-social-spiritual perspective, and includes a brief overview of psycho-social issues of HIV disease progression, including adherence issues. Participants will increase their skills in identifying and distinguishing client/consumer’s common psychological reactions to living with HIV/AIDS from those that warrant a mental health diagnosis; discuss dual and multiples diagnoses; and be able to differentiate mental health disorders from neuro-psychiatric complications. Participants will draw upon both knowledge and skills to practice culturally-competent assessment and intervention planning.
