In addition to presentations and theoretical information, the participants had the opportunities to train practical testing skills in groups.
The trainers were Tatiana Skliar (Global Fund Project Management Team), Tetiana Stepchenkova (Kyiv City AIDS Center, KCCH No. 5) and Viktoria Mochalova (“AIDS Center” of Zaporizhzhia City Council).
The second training session, “The workshop on the implementation of the ‘Patient’s School’ behavioral intervention” was aimed at raising the knowledge of social workers on types and techniques of counseling, peculiarities of the counseling the clients from various vulnerable groups, and the ethical and professional requirements for consultants.
