Click on the date below that works best for you

ARTAS

 

Anti-Retroviral Treatment and Access to Medication (ARTAS) is an individual- level, multi-session, time-limited intervention with the goal of linking recently diagnosed persons with HIV to medical care soon after receiving their respective test result. ARTAS is based on the Strengths-based Case Management (SBCM) model, which is rooted in Social Cognitive Theory (particularly self-efficacy) and Humanistic Psychology. SBCM is a model that encourages the client to identify and use personal strengths; create goals for himself/herself; and establish an effective, working relationship with the Linkage Coordinator. This is a three-day training with two 120-minute sessions each day.

 

 

Fundamentals of Motivational Interviewing

 

 

Motivational interviewing (MI) is an incredibly versatile skill set which can be used to assist clients to address challenges throughout their behavioral change. This two-day training will introduce learners to the foundational content and skills of MI. Divided into four 90-minute sessions, presented over two days, the training gives learners the opportunity to practice the fundamental skills necessary for applying MI.

 

HIV Testing in Nonclinical Settings

 

 

This is the latest version of the CDC’s training for HIV testing in nonclinical settings, reflecting scientific advances and evidence-informed updates. This three-day training focuses on a streamlined Six-Step Protocol with greater emphasis on serostatus-specific referrals and active linkage activities. Each training is approximately six hours.

 

Social Network Strategy (SNS) for HIV Testing Recruitment

 

 

Social Network Strategy (SNS) for HIV Testing Recruitment is an evidence supported approach to engaging and motivating a person to accept a service. SNS is particularly useful to recruit persons at risk for HIV into testing. This is a one-day training with 2 three-hour sessions.
