HIV patients, their friAnds and caregivers face significant conflicts and serious psychological issues that they must grapple with on a daily basis. Stigma and alienation, anger, anxiety and despair, multiple loss, burnout, terminal self-determination can be as difficult and complex to treat as the medical problems associated with this insidious epidemic.Treating the Psychological Consequences of HIV is the first book on therapeutic assessment and technique written for frontline clinicians who work with the millions of HIV patients and their friAnds, families, and caregivers. This comprehensive resource offers specific recommAndations for working with various HIV-client populations, such as gay men, heterosexuals, IV-drug users, dual diagnosis clients, people of color, children, women, couples and families. The book also addresses the important issues surrounding specific ethical and legal issues such as testing and disclosure versus confidentiality.
