'Course 2H - HIV and AOD Issues with Adolescents and Families' 

This course has two sections - both of which are published and copyrighted by the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute’s Clinical Guidelines Development Program.  

CEU By Net is sponsoring these journal articles with 2 CE Credit Hours (total). Each section (i.e., 'chapter') of the course has a short quiz.  You must pass both quizzes to receive a certificate. 

The first Study Guide in Course 2H pertains specifically to assessment and counseling with adolescents and young adults who are HIV-infected or diagnosed with AIDS.

The second Study Guide in this course focuses upon the impact of HIV and AIDS upon the family - particularly when it is the parent or caretaker who is ill - and how to address the multiple issues within the family in a therapeutic manner. Includes the complicated family dynamics which are present when the infected parent is not able or willing to share the specifics of his or her illness with children in the family, and how to approach this therapeutic challenge. 

 

'Course 2F - Personality Disorders in Persons with HIV/AIDS'. 

This assessment and treatment course addresses the behavioral health counseling side of HIV/AIDS health care when working with HIV-infected individuals who have a co-occurring diagnosis of Personality Disorder and, most frequently, SUDs. Special attention is devoted to the TREATMENT TEAM interactions and communications which are necessary to work with HIV-AIDS patients who have a diagnosis of Personality Disorder. 

This sponsored publication is published and copyrighted by the New York AIDS Institute’s Clinical Guidelines Development Program, a division of HIV Clinical Education Initiative (CEI), in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University Division of Infectious Diseases.  

The authors make the point that antisocial and borderline personality disorders are the two most prevalent personality disorders among clients with SUDs, and that those with borderline and antisocial personality disorders are more likely to participate in sexual and needle-sharing HIV risk behaviors.
 

Say the authors: "This chapter focuses on the fixed patterns of behavior and interpersonal relationships that characterize personality disorders, particularly the ways in which these behaviors impact medical care . . . Clinicians can interact with these patients effectively with a plan that focuses on support between the patient and the care team."

 

Course 2D - Advance Directives: Assisting with Plans for End of Life Care.

This course is both a 'Counseling Intervention Course' and an 'Ethics Course' which is appropriate for those working with HIV-AIDS patients and their partners and/or family members regarding their preferences for End of Life Care.

The course presents several classifications of medical patients for whom End of Life Care is an issue - adults and children with cancer or other critical illnesses or injuries, those with Alzheimer's and strokes, those in nursing homes or hospice care, those with HIV-AIDS, etc..

This research publication helps to DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN these categories of individuals for whom Advance Directives are an issue, and the differences in the counseling approach depending upon the situation, e.g., HIV/AIDS (where there is considerable uncertainty about when death is likely to occur) vs. an imminently terminal situation. A structured approach to the intervention and counseling interview is presented.

Why can this course be counted EITHER as a treatment intervention course or an ethics course? Because the issue of counseling dying or gravely ill or at-risk people and their families regarding their decisions for End of Life Care (Advance Directives) is fraught with both ethical and intervention issues. 

Such counseling assistance is a delicate matter and can be difficult for counselors to carry out without inadvertently inserting their own biases into the intervention. The materials provide a ‘KNOWLEDGE FRAMEWORK’ and 'GUIDELINES' for counseling individuals and families with differing medical issues and life circumstances -- and to do it ethically.
