In general, this workshop will provide basic information about HIV Disease, its impact on victims of crime, and how victim service professionals should respond. Longer presentations will delve into the specifics of the disease, testing, specific victim populations, workplace issues, and coordinating community services.
This workshop is designed for individuals working in the victim assistance and/or criminal justice fields. If the longer session (1 ½ days) is requested, then the number of participants should be kept to a minimum of 30 - 35.
Variable: Optimal running time between 1 and 3 hours. However, shorter and longer times are available by special arrangement.
Audio Visual Requirements:
For large rooms or groups larger than 35, a voice amplification system would be helpful. Groups of more than 50, amplification is probably necessary. I prefer a lavaliere microphone system, but can work with a hand-held or stationary mike mounted on or near the podium.
Generally, a full size or table top podium is preferred, however specific venues and formats may require and alternate setup. Half size table top will work as an alternative. I do like to move around during the presentation, so room around any podium set up is preferred.
Presenter will supply his own LCD projector, but if possible having a second projector for back-up in case of mechanical failure is recommended.
Require a projection screen large enough so that the projected image from the lap-top presentation can be easily seen by participants in the rear of the presentation venue.
Require a stand from which to project image from my LCD Projector. Stand should have a multiple-output power supply (i.e., power bar) and can accommodate a VCR if necessary.
Apart from the screen and stand described above, the presentation requires a VHS-VCR (standard models) that can be connected to the projector and to sound amplification if necessary, to play video tapes. The presenter will supply a small sound system that will provide amplification from video loud enough to be heard by audiences up to 50 people. Larger audience will require auxiliary amplification through a PA or other sound system (call to arrange for special audio needs).
In The Alternative
A TV, or series of TV’s cabled to a single VCR can be substituted for a projected image obtained through a digital projector, as long as participants can easily see the sets.
