Photo uploaded by Julie CortesiThis 35-minute video demonstrates counseling approaches for effectively and compassionately delivering HIV test results. It offers personal experiences and perspectives from diverse clients who have received both positive and negative test results and from providers who have given results; and emphasizes the importance of providing culturally appropriate services and referrals. This video will be useful for health care providers and counselors whose job includes delivering HIV test results to clients/patients, in settings including community health centers, family planning clinics, STD clinics, and physicians' offices.

The accompanying guide provides discussion questions and resources to enable peer learning. The guide includes the complete script for each scenario with annotated counseling techniques, suggestions from clients and tips from providers. JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc./2010.
