The traumatic sequelae of surviving the AIDS crisis, by Kyle Baird, DO.  

Dr. Baird is currently employed by the Mental Health Center of Denver, between his 3rd and 4th year of training, as a part of the community mental health career program within the University of Colorado psychiatry residency.

The association between HIV/AIDS and childhood sexual abuse: An exploratory case study by Xavier Diao, MD

He completed his training in general psychiatry at The Mount Sinai Hospital. His clinical interests include minority mental health (LGBTQ and Asian/Pacific Islander), psychodynamic psychotherapy, and the psychiatric care of transitional age youth.

This zoom session features recent articles from AGLP’s Journal of Gay and Lesbian Mental Health.  Dr. Baird will briefly review the evolution of trauma- and stressor-related disorders in the field of psychiatry and discuss several formulations regarding the prolonged psychological sequelae that may develop in survivors of the HIV/AIDS crisis.  Dr. Diao will speak about the association between HIV/AIDS and childhood sexual abuse, illustrated by a case example. He will explore epidemiologic, etiologic, and psychiatric considerations of risk-taking behavior in individuals with a history of childhood sexual trauma.  His paper won the 2019 JGLMH Outstanding Resident Paper Award.
