Overview

Guidance for Counseling People Living with AIDS

The HIV epidemic has been raging for almost twenty years. Volunteers and mental health practitioners who counsel HIV-infected clients are often overwhelmed by the demands made of them by this complex and ever-changing pandemic.

The University of California San Francisco AIDS Health Project Guide to Counseling synthesizes fifteen years experience in working with people with HIV and highlights the medical and psychological issues they confront, presenting effective strategies for counseling the ever-growing HIV infected population.

"This practical and state-of-the-art compendium is a rich resource that should be a -must read? for every health professional working in the field of HIV. . . . The book is bound to instantaneously become the standard against which other books in the field will be judged."—Michael Shernoff, editor of The Second Decade of AIDS: A Mental Health Practice Handbook and Counseling Chemically Dependent People with HIV Illness

"This is a startling book which eloquently presents insight and guidance on all levels of counseling around HIV issues. . . .Thorough, articulate, practical, and shows a depth of understanding which can only emerge at the confluence of excellent academia and extensive experience."—Lorraine Sherr, Churchill Fellow, Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine, University College London Medical School

"This volume is authored and compiled by some of the most experienced and thoughtful authorities in the field. In its detailed consideration of the behavioral aspects of the transmission and the mental health consequences of HIV infection, this volume provides an invaluable and welcome resource."'Richard W.
