Teaching Collegiate AIDS Prevention Programs: A State-wide Training Workshop.
Fennell, Reginald; Kerr, Dianne L.
Teaching Collegiate AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) Prevention Programs (TCAPP) is a 3-day education workshop which educates and trains student development professionals, college faculty, other university personnel, and students on how to provide HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus)/AIDS education. The workshop, held annually since 1988, is funded through a grant from the Ohio Department of Health and through participant registration fees. A workshop such as TCAPP is important because student development professionals and other educators need to be able to provide nonjudgmental care and services to students with HIV disease. The goals and objectives of the workshop are to: (1) prepare college faculty/staff and students to teach about HIV/AIDS; (2) develop a level of comfort with the topic of human sexuality so that the participants could be more effective in discussing and teaching sexually explicit information; (3) present options for teaching safer sex; (4) present methods to address sexual abstinence; (5) present content material for an HIV/AIDS course or program; (6) distribute current HIV/AIDS education resources; and (7) distribute a workshop participant directory to promote networking. Workshop participants (N=88) for the last 2 years completed a knowledge and attitude test about HIV/AIDS. The survey results indicated knowledge level was high and attitudes were positive. (ABL)
