About the Course:
This class navigates the Gay man’s journey during the AIDS epidemic and shows how HIV impacted community fear and trauma. It describes the history, the principles, and the ongoing uphill battle to change an archaic legal system. This video will help clinicians sort out the reasons that Gay men are far more reluctant to participate in treatment as most treatment is not designed to be culturally sensitive to their needs. Gay men tend not to expose their sexual orientation during treatment. This class discusses ways to delve deeper into the client’s relationships in order to establish an accurate history and pathway to open communication.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, The Gay Man’s Experience During the AIDS Epidemic and how it Impacted Community Trauma created by Steven Arnold, MSW in 2020.

Course Material Author
The main significance for licensed clinicians is that there is no graduate program that we know of in the country that offers gender-specific treatment for boys/men or for gay men and also very few, if any, professional workshops available on these topics. Counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists and social workers will all benefit from this information. This course is appropriate for all levels of knowledge.
Describe ways to build trust with clients who identify as gay boys and men.
Explain strategies to facilitate entry into recovery/mental health services.
Summarize the impact of community trauma during the AIDS epidemic.
Demonstrate the discrimination and prejudice historically suffered by the gay community.
