Trauma plays an outsized role in many more clinical interactions than we think. In order to provide effective HIV care, or any care for that matter, we must gain an understanding of trauma and begin to provide trauma-informed care to all of our patients. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the pervasiveness of trauma among people with HIV and the principles of care necessary to avoid doing harm. We’ll also discuss specific trauma disorders like PTSD and how to diagnose and treat them.
