Having Difficult Conversations with Clients about Sexual Health

Presented by LaToya Tyson, AIDS Connecticut

Target Audience: Case Managers, Medical Case Managers, HIV Prevention Staff

Talking about sex and sexual health is difficult for most people. During this training we'll really get comfortable talking about all facets of sex and sexual health which includes ways to not make assumptions about clients’ sexual orientation and/or behavior. We’ll delve into the importance of MCMs discussing not only clients’ sexual history, but also their current and future sexual health with their PCPs. Participants will get hands on training on how to be comfortable with handling and demonstrating male/female condom/dental dam use with their clients. Then we'll do some role plays on how to have these types of discussions with clients.

Objectives:

  • To provide education about sexual health and why it’s important
  • To increase awareness of one’s own prejudices, biases, assumptions, and stereotypes about sexuality and sexual health
