Counseling in the Fourth Decade of an Epidemic: The Past, Present, and Future of HIV/AIDS

Mar 31, 2019 8:45am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 10:15am


Description

In the decades since HIV/AIDS was first identified, medical discoveries have advanced prevention and treatment, and shifting demographics have changed the face of the illness. HIV is no longer a death sentence, although social determinants of health have contributed to the disproportionate effect that HIV/AIDS has in some marginalized communities. This session will assist professional counselors in providing people affected by HIV/AIDS with relevant, culturally sound services that are free of bias and stigma.

  • Attendees will be able to identify key events, including medical developments, in the timeline of HIV/AIDS in the U.S.
  • Attendees will be able to describe the shifting demographics of people affected by HIV/AIDS with respect to social determinants of health and health disparities.
  • Attendees will be able to use stigma-free language regarding HIV/AIDS as a means of providing culturally and ethically sound services to clients affected by HIV/AIDS.

Speaker(s):

  • Richelle Joe, PhD, Assistant Professor, University of Central Florida
  • David J. Ford, PhD, Assistant Professor, Monmouth University
  • Tiffany Hairston, PhD, Clinical Supervision/Adjunct Professor, Unison Health
