New Foundations (SPANISH)

Esta nueva capacitación para proveedores de servicios de prevención se enfoca en las necesidades de salud y de bienestar de hombres gay, bisexuales y otros hombres que tienen relaciones sexuales con hombres (HSH). "Nuevos Horizontes" ofrece nuevas perspectivas en el área de trabajo de prevención del VIH con HSH, con miras a expandir el conocimiento, destrezas y sensibilidad de proveedores de servicios de prevención y de salud.

Los fundamentos de esta capacitación son: 1) la Perspectiva de las Fortalezas Humanas y 2) el Modelo del Bienestar Holístico. El primer fundamento se refiere al uso de las cualidades y capacidades (o "fortalezas") de los clientes para lidiar con los retos cotidianos que HSH viven y que afectan sus intenciones de mantenerse saludables, especialmente en relación con la prevención del VIH. El segundo fundamento, el Modelo Holístico del Bienestar, toma en cuenta aspectos de la vida de la persona mas allá del ámbito físico- sexual, y describe como estos ámbitos interactúan y afectan las intenciones de prevención de la persona, tanto en individuos VIH seronegativos como seropositivos.

Algunos de los temas a tratar son: las vivencias compartidas por HSH, el impacto de la homofobia en la salud total y la salud sexual, la formación de la identidad, la espiritualidad, y los sistemas de creencias. El manejo de estos temas por los proveedores de servicios incrementará su efectividad en el área de prevención del VIH con HSH.
