About the Event
Rachel Michaelsen, LCSW
A little of 20% of new HIV diagnoses in the United States and dependent areas were among youth. In order to help prevent HIV infection in system involved youth, those that support them need to understand risk factors, prevention strategies and how to teach this information to system involved youth. HIV+ system involved youth and their families need support to manage the medical and psychosocial issues they face. In this class we will focus on prevention, signs and symptoms, testing, stages of infection, legal issues, social and cultural issues, preparing youth for loss of a parent from HIV, mental health issues and resources. This course meets the pre-licensure requirements for HIV/AIDS (7 hours) for individuals applying for a license with the Board of Behavioral Sciences. This class includes lecture, video and interactive activities. Participants must be present with their camera on and prepared to participate in the class activities.
