About this Item

"Hence, the purpose in writing this book. It is my hope that any individual who choses to work with the African American HIV/AIDS related population, be it on a professional or non-professional basis, will try to learn more about that population from a cultural and sub-cultural perspective. Not that some of the points brought out in this book could not be seen in other races or cultures, but that these points are very often seen in African Americans with HIV/AIDS." This book has 215 pages. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Dr. Pamela Black Johnson, LPC. Bookseller Inventory # 044442

About this title

Synopsis:

Historically, methods for couseling, case management, and other forms of emotional support for HIV or AIDS were developed using experiences and research conducted on gay, white Americans. Consequently, these methods of counseling may have been inappropriate and culturally insensitive to many African Americans.

In AIDS & African Americans, the reader will find a comprehensive guide covering the major areas of social and psychological impact that HIV and AIDS has on many African Americans. The book will provide culturally specific guidance designed to help the infected population and their loved ones, as well as professionals. The information will help professionals and non-professionals alike gain better understanding, develop stronger levels of sensitivity, and learn tested approaches to helping this group of individuals. It also will guide the reader to a better quality of life for those infected and affected by the disease.

From the Publisher:

The author, Dr. Pamela Blackwell Johnson, has counseled impacted African American men and women, and their loved ones, since the increased presence of African American HIV or AIDS cases in the United States. After 10 years of couseling experience, she has developed a holistic approach to understanding this population by studying the four major groups of African Americans impacted by HIVor AIDS: -Substance Abuse
-Homosexuality and bisexuality
-Heterosexual males and females
-Caregivers
She also covers four major social systems that impact these people:
-Political and economic
-Social and Family
-Medical
-Counseling
