A Guide for Counselors in the AIDS Community This practical and state-of-the-art compedium 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 Highlighting the work of pioneers in the field, this important book is a comprehensive resource for professionals and volunteers working in the HIV epidemic. Now that the epidemic has been with us for more than a decade, researchers and clinicians have had the opportunity to explore the results of the AIDS virus-see the populations affected, note the medical and emotional issues faced by those infected, and think about ways to help. This anthology offers a wealth of practical information and innovative advice. The authors address the therapeutic challenges of treating this population and offer guidance for dealing with issues such as countertransference, grief management, multiple loss, and assisted suicide. The book also describes specific treatment techniques for working with clients with HIV and dual diagnoses such as substance abuse and psychiatric disorders.
