What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Cynthia Cannon Poindexter has taken that "baton" and has given usa remarkable edited volume that contains much information on HIVthat every professional social worker needs to know in order topractice competently in today's complex world. Certainly, for thesocial worker committed to HIV social work practice as a specialtyarea, this volume is a "must have" for one's professional library.I believe it will be the leading work that guides our work in thiscountry at least for the next five to ten years. This handbookbuilds a critical inter-generational bridge by linking tomorrow'sleaders in HIV social work practice, policy, education, andresearch with those mentors who are rich with many years ofpractice wisdom. I commend the editor and all chapter authors forthis much needed and excellent addition to our HIV social workknowledge base."
Vincent J. Lynch, MSW, PhD, Boston College GraduateSchool of Social Work

"The long term presence of HIV in the United States continues tochallenge contemporary concepts of public health care, humanrights, social work practice and policy, and prevention. Whilethere have been some successes in prevention and services, rates ofinfection and deaths in populations of color have increasedmarkedly over the past decade. Clearly, debate in the United Statesneeds direction to alter the policies and practices that drivenational responses to the most crucial disease of our time. Thiscomprehensive handbook assembles a group of social work scholarsand practitioners to participate in, guide, and address many of theunresolved challenges characterizing the HIV debates. In 20chapters, the writers place HIV in historical, practice, and policycontext. This handbook is a valuable and timely addition to theliterature."

The social work workforcecontinues to stand ready to address HIV through professional andcontinuing education opportunities. This Handbook addresses thesocial work values, knowledge, and skills necessary to connectthese complex issues at both the micro and macro level practice.This Handbook is an outstanding resource for the social workprofessional working to ensure equal access to care, treatment, andresources for all persons living with and/or affected byHIV."
