Overview

Perhaps no other population exposes the clinician to more moral and le gal dilemmas than working with HIV positive clients. What does the the rapist do about the HIV client who is having sex with unnamed partners and refuses to stop? What should be said in end-of-life issues? What of the adolescent who is HIV but whose guardian does not wish the yout h informed of his status? The questions are clearly practical but the published literature tends to be theoretical and offers little in the way of down-to-earth advice. While no book can provide absolute answe rs to such questions, this volume provides a practical decision-making model. It begins with an overview of the most common ethical dilemmas that are encountered in HIV-related psychotherapy and discusses the d egree of risk of legal malpractice and how to reduce this risk.
