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.
