Abstract
Health care professionals can make a positive contribution to the empowerment, self-esteem, and sexual decision-making by clients through adult education teaching strategies which support choices for healthy, informed decisions about AIDS and sexuality. The purpose of AIDS training for First Nations health care workers was to become knowledgeable and skilled in the design and implementation of training for their communities with specific focus on education of Chief and council, eiders, and youth; and that trainees would increase their comfort, skill, and self-esteem levels when facilitating the sensitive issues of human sexuality. A five-day training session was held emphasizing adult education process skills; the second five-day session focused on HIV/AIDS content. Trainees had an opportunity to facilitate their workshop, which included concepts such as basic AIDS knowledge, condom education, human sexuality, refusal skills, homophobia, and traditional values and beliefs. Experiential group process and cross-cultural skills utilized by the training team provided an effective method for attitude change.
