BeschreibungAs we approach the 21st century, we also approach the third decade of the AIDS epidemic. Mental health care providers must face the crucial fact that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the condition it causes, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is the leading cause of death among Americans aged 25-44 years.
HIV Mental Health for the 21st Century provides a roadmap for mental health professionals who seek to develop new strategies aimed at increasing the longevity and quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as at controlling the future spread of the disease. Divided into five sections, this volume covers basic concepts in HIV/AIDS mental health; specialized aspects of HIV/AIDS clinical care; models of clinical care; program evaluation; and HIV mental health policy and programs. Chapters treat issues such as feelings of caregivers, the role of spirituality in mental health care, rural practice, mental health home care, and working with children.
Pressestimmen"Koot weaves a fascinating tale of the tensions between center and periphery during the early decades of the British Empire. The new English colonies struggled to acquire a staple crop or trade and to get the provisions and commodities they needed to continue to grow. England could not supply them adequately and the Dutch could. The resulting conflicts fueled the arguments between London and its nascent empire and shaped the ultimate form of the empire. Koot has given us a new and fresh look at English trade and empire." -Robert Ritchie, Senior Research Associate, Huntington Library
