AHP’s adult learning and behavior change expertise ensures that our trainings are interactive, engaging, and effective. Participants explore values and beliefs. They learn and practice new skills that support their professional development. We provide face-to-face and online courses and site-specific technical assistance. We offer continuing education units for California-licensed providers (for more information, see individual course listings and our CEU Center.)
Since 1986, AHP has developed and provided the California Office of AIDS counseling and testing certification trainings, including counseling courses, rapid test proficiency training and finger stick proficiency training. We also offer a variety of other trainings, including Personalized Cognitive Counseling, the CDC-designated evidence-based HIV prevention intervention for men who have sex with men; HIV-related outreach; prevention for people with HIV; and HIV and hepatitis C counseling and testing.
Service Providers Seeking to Increase Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Cultural Competence
AHP offers courses on issues such as LGBTQ cultural competence and sensitivity, LGBTQ health policy, human sexuality, and stigma.
Based on our history of pioneering clinical programs for substance users with HIV as well as counseling and testing trainings, AHP offers a multicourse training program for substance use treatment providers working with HIV.
Many of our trainings support the work of mental health service providers dealing with issues—ranging from burnout to harm reduction—that extend beyond HIV, LGBTQ cultural competence, and substance use treatment. And we can tailor existing courses for new contexts.
