HIV/AIDS 101 for Community Educators--2007

(Formerly HIV/AIDS Train the Trainer)

A free modular workshop facilitated by City of Toronto Public Health Sexual Health Educators in conjunction with Community Members.  

Are you a new HIV/AIDS community worker or educator in Toronto?  Do you need basic HIV/AIDS information?  Are you looking for group and counselling strategies when educating about HIV/AIDS?  Do you want to increase your comfort when discussing sex and sexuality?  Do you want to explore the challenges of working from an anti-oppression framework?  Do you want to incorporate theoretical models of change theory into real life situations?

If you answer yes to any of the above, this workshop is for you!
