HIV: A Virus, a Syndrome, and an Ethical Question – Updated (3 CEUs – Ethics/HIV, 3 CME- HIV)

Since the early 1980’s clinicians have been grappling with the medical, social and ethical ramifications of the HIV/Aids Epidemic. On the medical front, great progress has been achieved. With proper medication people with HIV are living longer than ever, to the point where some no longer consider it a fatal illness. Yet in our region and in many large cities, HIV cases remain above epidemic rates and many questions still remain.

This informative training will offer an understanding of current thinking around the HIV/AIDS epidemic and what it means for clients today and into the future. This training will look at what treatment is available for HIV, and the best ways to prevent new infections. We will take a fresh look at some of the ethical dilemmas that clinicians have been grappling with for more than a generation. This 3 CEU class counts as both Ethics and HIV training. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)

QPR: Ask a question save a Life – LGBTQ Focus (3 CEUs, 3 CME)

Everyday, approximately 123 Americans die by Suicide. Members of the LGBTQ population face additional risks for suicide. Suicide is currently the 10th leading form of death in the US. Yet suicide is also the most preventable form of death.  The QPR Method will teach you 3 simple steps that can help you prevent a suicide. This interactive training will bust common myths about suicide. We will also look at risks and rates of suicide among the LGBTQ population and look at how the QPR method can prevent suicide.   Participants will engage in discussion and increase their comfort level in working with suicidal clients. You will learn to recognize signs of suicidality, including situational, behavioral and verbal clues. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the nature of suicide and how to work with clients in a suicidal crisis.  (Trainer, Sherrie L. Ludwick, LCPC, NCC is a relationship repair specialist, and is trained in Somatic Experiencing & other techniques used to treat trauma. Sherrie is also an AASECT certified Sex Therapist)
