Supporting Self-Disclosure of a Health Condition

This course is designed to assist DIS, Patient Navigators and other HIV/STD prevention & care staff to support clients who want to self-disclose a health condition to:

  • Sex partners
  • Injecting substance using partners
  • Other important people in their lives who may provide support

We describe the benefits and challenges of self-disclosure and introduce a four-step model that can be used to assist when engaging in discussions around self-disclosure.

This course is the pre-requisite to a live skills-based session. For more information about attending a skills-based course visit
