Condom-less sex, though a healthy and informed choice for many, can also be associated with poor self-regard and self-destructive behavior, particularly for MSM (Men who have Sex with Men) populations, where HIV is more prevalent. With current trends in the sexualized use of Crystal Methamphetamine and the popularity of Bareback pornography and dating sites, many therapists are finding themselves challenged to address their clients’ ambivalence toward the use of condoms.
Motivational Interviewing can be a powerful tool in addressing this ambivalence. Described as collaborative, evocative and honouring of the client’s autonomy, MI harnesses the client’s readiness to change through some unique tools and communication skills that elicit cooperation rather than resistance.
Those attending the training will learn Motivational Interviewing skills, how to adapt them to address risky sexual behavior and how to motivate their clients toward affective change. We will also explore the phenomenon of Barebacking and the challenges/prejudices we as therapists may face with this client group.
Training time is from 10am to 5pm.
