Counselling people with HIV/AIDS is not only a gift, but an on-going process of learning and acquiring wisdom. A learning and wisdom which can only be acquired through helping those who have been infected with, or affected by, HIV and AIDS.
Skill in comprehensive HIV and AIDS Counselling encompasses all aspects of HIV and AIDS, from diagnosis to death, and is therefore seminal to the sound emotional, psychological and spiritual support of people with HIV.
Since the advent of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, the concept of voluntary, counselling and testing (VCT) has gone far beyond the mere testing of people to determine the nature and cause of what ailed them.
To meet this, need the Foundation for Professional Development has designed a course in HIV/AIDS management for lay-counsellors. A comprehensive, easy-to-use, manual for Southern Africa has been developed by a leading expert in the field. The study guide eliminates the need for additional textbooks, thus providing an integrated course for caregivers, supporters and lay-counsellors.
All supporters, caregivers and lay-counsellors who need to prepare themselves for the challenges of providing support and counselling to people affected by HIV.
